The self-acclaimed ‘darling boy’ of former President John Dramani Mahama, Kwaku Appiah widely known as Appiah Stadium says his viral telephone call recording with the former president was staged at a gunpoint.
He alleged that some military men held his throat and threatened him to say certain things against the NDC while speaking to the former President.
The Kumasi-based NDC serial caller has been in the news over the couple of weeks for raining abusive words on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo – he tagged the president as a drug addict and likening him to an ape.
He was later invited by the Bureau of National Investigations [BNI] for interrogation but the president in a statement noted that he was not interested in the case – hence, Appiah Stadium was freed.
The controversial serial caller after his release was captured in a video speaking on phone with a person believed to be former President John Mahama.
In the video which went viral on social media, Appiah Stadium pleaded with the former President to intervene on his behalf as some appointees of the erstwhile NDC government wanted him imprisoned by the current government.
But, in his newest video circulating on social media, the staunch NDC support has alleged that he was threatened by soldiers to say bad things against his party (NDC).
“During my conversation with former President Mahama, I was surrounded by soldiers who were strangling me. Anyone in my shoes would have said worse things,” he explained.
He said the video was deliberately leaked to disgrace and to also cover up the impasse between Kwame A Plus and the two Deputy Chiefs of Staff, Francis Asenso-Boakye and Samuel Abu Jinapor.
“The NPP deliberately leaked the video to taunt the NDC and cover up the corruption allegations leveled against some appointees at the Presidency by A Plus. That video is useless and anyone who has it should throw it away,” he stressed.
