Speaking after his release on Thursday, Hon. Agyapong sought to downplay his comments which the police say could have incited violence. He is on a GHC400, 000 bail and facing charges of treason felony, attempts of terrorism and genocide.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmaker is calling on his colleague legislator to publicly apologise.
“When I heard the replay from other positions, I think the most honourable thing for my good friend to do is to apologise to Ghanaians,” Hon. Nyaunu told Citi News.
“If that is not what he said, at least that is what Ghanaians perceive he said. I think it will be honourable for him to sincerely apologise.”
Hon. Nyaunu is also concerned that the opposition New Patriotic Party took advantage of the situation to make Mr. Agyapong a hero.
“They made him a hero because characteristically the NPP are good in turning tides in their favour. They were able to amass people to let them believe he is being intimidated. A lot of people are vulnerable and I can tell you that some people have taken him as a hero,” the Lower Manya MP said.
