“On the 5th July, conversation between Dr. Mac Palm and the BNI informant who had infiltrated the TAG, Dr. Mac Palm gave details of all the plan including the blocking of 66 Artillery Regiment, the Jubilee House, and indicated that they will block all the exit and entry route so that Ofori-Atta and all the big guys cannot escape”, Colonel Amponsah told an Accra High Court.
He further stated Dr. Mac Palm “also talked about capturing of the president and referred to a function that took place in the north”.
He stressed that at the said function, “the President was there, Vice President was there and the Speaker of Parliament was there and he indicated that he didn’t see the Chief Justice and they are looking for a function where all four are present so they can capture them”.
