The embattled Assin North Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong, will be arraigned before court today to be formally charged with treason.
The lawmaker has been in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) over the last 48 hours.
His detention follows comments he made on his own radio station, Oman FM, in Accra, which the police deemed treasonable. He allegedly said he is declaring war in the country and urged Akans to attack Gas and Ewes ? comments political watchers have condemned.
The acting Public Relations Officer of the Police, DSP Cephas Arthur, confirmed the charge and said it could be amended depending on the full outcome of the investigations and what transpires in court.
If found guilty, Hon. Agyapong could face the death penalty.
