One of the coup plotters who wanted to kick Akufo-Addo out of power happens to be a woman serving with the Ghana Army.

The only woman, Warrant Officer II, Esther Saan, was among the 10 people who were being tried for attempting to stage a coup d’etat and overthrow the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.

According to a report filed by Daily Guide, she was the person who suggested that the group eliminates President Akufo-Addo when he is finally captured.

Ziyerli Agbambila, lawyer for the accused person, in his cross-examination sought to challenge the evidence-in-chief of the witness that WO II Esther Saan suggested that the President be eliminated but the witness insisted that she did and said “she was captured on audio and there was a witness at the meeting too.”

Cross-Examination

During cross examination, Esther’s lawyer sought to discredit this evidence by the witness, stating that his client never said such a thing.

Even when the witness insisted that the accused actually made the statement and there was an audio recording and a witness to prove she made the statement, the lawyer maintained it was not true.

Back ground
