‘I’ll Escape Your Traps’ – Godfred Dame Quotes From The Bible As He Breaks Silence On Jakpa Allegations



In the latest episode of Ghana’s legal reality show, Attorney-General and Minister of Justice Godfred Yeboah Dame took center stage, delivering a sermon worthy of a Sunday pulpit amid the tumultuous ambulance purchase trial. With a mix of divine invocations and legal rebukes, Dame showcased his talent for theatrics in the face of allegations that resemble a courtroom soap opera.

Standing firm against what he described as “deceit and malice,” the Attorney-General drew upon sacred scripture to bolster his unwavering resolve. Channeling the Book of Psalms, he declared to reporters, “The Lord does not delight in the pleasure of the wicked… Even though they lay traps for me, I’ll flee from them. The righteous will always prevail over evil.” One might wonder if he had a halo stashed somewhere for added effect.

The courtroom itself was no less dramatic, as lawyers for the first and third accused individuals inundated the proceedings with a veritable buffet of legal challenges. From appeals and stay of proceedings to motions alleging misconduct and mistrial, the stage was set for a judicial showdown.

On June 4th, Judge Afia Serwah Asare-Botwe, perhaps feeling like a ringmaster at a particularly unruly circus, acknowledged the flood of applications, signaling the start of what promises to be a contentious legal melee.

Deputy Attorney-General Alfred Tuah Yeboah’s opposition to dropping charges against the third accused, Richard Jakpa, sparked spirited exchanges that could rival any televised debate. Lead counsel Thaddeus Sory, not to be outdone, decried the opposition’s affidavit as hearsay, lacking in essential particulars. In response, Attorney-General Dame unleashed a rebuke that could have melted the court’s gavel.

“The objections are duly unfounded and are without merit,” Dame thundered, dismissing the opposing counsel’s arguments as “baseless attempts to derail the course of justice.” One could almost hear the dramatic background score crescendo as Dame continued, “My lady will note that my learned friend did not state any particulars of the objection. He only refers to specific paragraphs he intends to attack.”

The courtroom drama, replete with fervent declarations and vehement denials, built to a climax as Justice Asare-Botwe announced her impending ruling on June 6. The air was thick with anticipation, as litigants and spectators braced for the next twist in this legal saga.

Adding a spicy subplot to the main narrative, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) tendered a scandalous audio recording purportedly capturing the Attorney-General coercing Richard Jakpa to implicate Minority Leader Cassiel Ato Forson in the trial. This revelation ignited a frenzy of accusations and counterclaims, turning the courtroom into a veritable battleground of conflicting narratives and conspiracies.

Undeterred by the swirling controversy, Attorney-General Dame remained steadfast, invoking both legal statutes and divine protection as he navigates the treacherous waters of public opinion and judicial scrutiny.
