Mugabe was reported to have criticised Rev Owusu Bempah over alleged remarks that former President John Dramani Mahama was plotting to kill the Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia and some government officials.

According to reports, Rev Owusu Bempah, in the company of armed men reportedly stormed the premises of the radio station at East Legon, last Friday, and demanded to see the radio host for making derogatory comments about him on radio.

He was reported to have hurled insults at the staff when he was told Mugabe was not at the office, and also issued threats against Mugabe and the staff.

The management of the radio station made an official report to East Legon Police, and issued a statement condemning the action of Rev Owusu Bempah and called on the police to arrest him.
