The arrests occurred in 2019 following a police operation at the Citadel hospital, linking the accused to an alleged plot to destabilize the country.

The prosecution, supported by 13 witnesses, including Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) officers, presented evidence, including video footage, depicting the accused planning activities to destabilize the nation, including the alleged manufacturing of ammunition.

Despite the charges, all the accused individuals pleaded not guilty and completed their defense. Dr. Mac Palm, one of the accused, had his testimony removed from the case following his passing last year.

The judgment, scheduled for today, holds significant weight as it will decide the fate of the accused, who, if found guilty according to the constitution, may face the possibility of a death sentence.
