Three Ghanaian citizens have presented a request to the Canadian High Commission asking for copies of reports of any possible investigations carried by the Commission on the alleged robbery attack on Evelyn Aidoo who is also known as Serwaa Broni.
The three–Issifu Seidu Kudus Gbeadese, Elikem Kotoko and Stephen Kwabena Attuh– stated in their petition that Serwaa Broni had on several occasions stated that she is a citizen of Canada.
The Ghanaian born Canadian in a recent interview with US-based Loud Silence TV alleged that the robbery attack on her was because she had the naked pictures of Ghanaian president Nana Akufo-Addo whom she had had an amorous relationship with.
Some Ghanaians believe the narrative of Serwaa Broni is so revealing that she may have had access to some vital information on national security and warrants that Akufo-Addo be impeached.
According to the three petitioners, their request is hinged on the need to pursue an impeachment petition against President Nana Akufo-Addo which they submitted to Parliament on 21st April, 2022.
According to them, any such reports in the possession of the Canadian High Commission, would provide additional materials that would support their petition, taking cognisance of the fact that the matter brought before the police under the investigations of Mrs. Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah who was then the Head of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service was swept under the carpet.
The Three, earlier submitted a petition to the Speaker of Parliament demanding an inquiry into allegations by Evelyn Aidoo to the effect that the National Security under the operations of Mr. Hopeson Adorye who was then the Deputy National Security Coordinator in charge of the Airport staged an armed robbery attack on her with the tacit approval of the President who functions as Chairman of the National Security Council, to retrieve the alleged nude pictures of the President.
The request notes that the Canadian High Commission could not be drawn into meddling in the internal security matters and politics of Ghana.
They have however noted that they are informed by the obligations of the High Commission to its citizen, Evelyn Aidoo (Serwaa Broni).
“We are minded by your obligations as a Mission representing your country, Canada, as per International Law. We are therefore not inviting you to meddle in the internal security matters and politics of Ghana, but to strictly execute your mandate within the remits of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961 and Vienna Convention of Consular Relations of 1963,” the statement noted.
It is the position of the Three Citizens that any relevant reports that may have been compiled by the High Commission on the reported attacks on Serwaa Broni would serve the people of Ghana a better interest as well as aid Parliament in its inquiry in relation to the petition pending before Parliament.
