Martin Amidu has clapped back at Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong over claims about his unfitness to have held the position of the Special Prosecutor .

Martin Amidu said Mr Agyapong is fond of slandering persons with integrity who want to fight corruption.

Mr. Agyapong had claimed that Mr. Amidu has a “mental issue” and has been concealing his medical records from Germany.’

However, the former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, denied the allegation and challenged the legislator to back his claims with proof.

“Kennedy Agyapong is known in Ghana as someone who spews lies at any person of integrity who tries to fight corruption. So I am not surprised that he stooped that low to make accusations without any foundation,” Mr. Amidu told Accra-based Citi FM.

“I have never been to Germany on any occasion and let alone for a medical check, therefore, his allegations are false. And if he has any document to the contrary, he should produce them because my passports are available as evidence.”

The former Special Prosecutor, had earlier admonished members of the governing NPP against attacking him following his decision to resign, else he may respond in an undesirable manner.

“I have said since I left the office that I was not going to give any press interview about my resignation, I am being pushed by so-called responses to me which contain blatant falsehoods to speak but I do not want anybody to blame me when I speak out and it becomes unpalatable so either the attack stops or I will defend my integrity even if that means my death. It is something I am not going to allow anybody not even the President to pull that integrity into the mud…”

Mr. Amidu also said should anything happen to him, the President, Akufo-Addo should be blamed.

Subsequently, President Akufo-Addo has moved to provide protection for Mr. Amidu after the former Special Prosecutor claimed his life was being threatened.

The President has directed the Inspector General of Police to ensure that Mr. Amidu gets 24-hour protection with immediate effect.
