ACP Agordzo, acquitted of treason charges seeks compensation for ordeal

A retired Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Dr Benjamin Kwasi Agordzo, who recently obtained acquittal and discharge from treason charges by an Accra High Court, has voiced his expectation of compensation from the State for the turmoil he and his family endured during the five-year legal battle.

In an interview, Dr Agordzo articulated his belief that he and his family deserve restitution for the injustices they faced.

He recounted the harrowing experience of being labeled a coup plotter by the State and the subsequent ordeal of facing trial for allegations he vehemently denied.

“Honestly, I ought to be compensated for all the wrongs done to me and my family,” Dr Agordzo expressed. “I have a wife, children who have shared many tears in silence.”

He vividly described the distressing impact the ordeal had on his family, highlighting the trauma experienced by his children who witnessed his arrest and subsequent legal proceedings. Dr Agordzo emphasized the emotional toll of being separated from his family during the ordeal and the anguish of enduring court appearances and interactions with security agencies over the years.

The retired ACP’s journey through the legal system came to a positive resolution when an Accra High Court acquitted and discharged him of the treason charges brought against him. However, the scars of the ordeal remain, prompting Dr. Agordzo to seek compensation as a form of redress for the injustices inflicted upon him and his family.

As the nation grapples with the aftermath of Dr. Agordzo’s acquittal and his call for compensation, discussions on the need for accountability and justice in legal proceedings are reignited. The case serves as a reminder of the importance of upholding due process and protecting the rights of individuals, even in the face of serious allegations.
