Metro TV journalist and host of Good Evening Ghana, Paul Adom-Otchere, has alleged that there is a plot led by an NDC Member of Parliament to ‘silence him’ – or in other words assassinate him.
Adom-Otchere made the claim during a recent episode of his show.
The journalist said he had been alerted to the plot by security agencies who are working on the case to bring the culprits to book.
“We are in a political station and I’m doing this program. They had a meeting on Wednesday and planned that they were going to harm me or something like that. There is one MP involved. The security people have picked that up and they’ve told me.
“There is an MP involved and we know who he is. I know you Mr MP and we are coming for you. They said I drive alone so they will harm me. I really don’t understand. You don’t think the security people are working, they are really working. Every conversation, you had there, they know it. I didn’t know but they told me. Why would you sit down and say you are going to silence me?” Adom-Otchere quizzed.
“Apparently that phrase (we have to silence him) was used so many times. Silence me with your brain, not your gun. This has nothing to do with NDC. It is not NDC policy or philosophy. It is some people and some of them may be NDC. The security people have picked that up. ‘We have to silence him. He shouldn’t see the end of this year, really. The security people are coming after you.” he said on his show.
