Controversial politician and businessman, Kennedy Agyapong has revealed how the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) contracted prisoners to kill him but he miraculously survived that plot.
Last week on Oman Fm’s Boiling Point monitored by TheNewsGh.com, the Assin Central lawmaker disclosed that he is the worst enemy of the opposition and therefore will be a major target if there is anyone to eliminate.
He enumerated instances where they tried silencing him but it failed to work claiming one of those was the hiring of prisoners to assassinate but for the timely intervention of the Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch Newspaper, Mr Ben Ephson.
“I am the first person in NPP that NDC will love to eliminate, one, they charged me with treason, it didn’t work, two, they planned to kill me using prisoners even though some people died and the matter is in court, it didn’t work”, the livid politician revealed on the show.
According to him, he will kill the young man who was allegedly contracted by some gurus believed to be members of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) to assassinate him about four years ago.
He still does not understand why the young man should continue to live since he accepted to take his(Kennedy) life for a paltry sum.
“I will finish this guy. Once I have seen the kind of person he is he will vanish,” he declared.
“I will kill that neggar,” he added.
The suspect, one Mumuni who is standing trial at the Tema Circuit A, and three others were said to have been contracted by some persons to kill Mr Agyapong.
However, luck eluded them when a brother of one of the four assailants got wind of the plot and went to inform Mr. Ben Ephson, the Managing Editor of the Daily Dispatch about the issue.
Ostensibly, the informant wanted Mr Ephson to publish a story to that effect in his newspaper but he rather gave the information to the then Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Alhassan, who planted police officers leading to the arrest of the suspects.
Speaking on Oman FM’s political analysis programme “Boiling Point” on Thursday night Mr Kennedy Agyapong said: “I was in court for the first time and when I saw the guy who was contracted to kill me I was shocked.”
“When I looked at the guy…he appeared to me like someone who was in a gutter and had been picked and bathed and this is the guy who was to kill me. I couldn’t control my emotions…It was like I should pass behind the judge and go and hold his head and twist it and kill him there,” he fumed.
