Kweku Baako names source of images of coup plotters’ weapons


Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, Kweku Baako Jnr, has revealed the mastermind behind the images of the weapons mentioned by the government supposedly meant to overthrow the government.

He said the pictures of weapons which were circulated to the media did not come from the security operatives.

Speaking on Accra based Peace FM, monitored by, the ace journalist said the pictures were circulated by a nurse at Citadel Hospital at Alajo.

The motive, he noted, was to promote skepticism to prove that indeed it was not a coup.

“These pictures circulating on social media were taken by a certain nurse who works at the health facility. She gave them to a journalist and the journalist put them out to reinforce the skepticism and so that was the purpose.

“The security has put nothing out there in terms of pictorial. It was a deliberate and calculated agenda. It helped the agenda that there is no case,” he disclosed.

Government on Monday announced a planned attack on the Jubilee House had been detected and foiled by a combined team of security operatives.

The planned attack was intended to destabilise the country, government said in a statement.

The said operation, according to a statement from the Information Ministry, took place on Thursday, September 19, 2019.
