Amidu’s petition alleges procurement irregularities in the acquisition of vehicles for the Office of the Special Prosecutor (OSP) and various abuses concerning judges and the justice system, forming the basis for Agyebeng’s impeachment. Additional claims include violations of citizens’ rights, improper personnel appointments, and breaches of the right to information within the OSP.

The Chief Justice is reportedly assessing whether there is sufficient evidence to establish a committee for Agyebeng’s impeachment under Article 146 of the Constitution, following President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s referral of the petition for further consideration.

Amidu specifically cited the arrests of individuals such as Cecilia Dapaah and Prof. Frimpong Boateng as examples of alleged rights abuses by Agyebeng. He also criticized Agyebeng’s request for appointment letters and salary details of OSP staff to be provided on a pen drive, claiming it violated the right to information.

Additionally, Amidu raised concerns about improper personnel appointments within the office.

In response to Professor Kwasi Prempeh’s discussion of the petition, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako expressed his disbelief, stating, “Oh! My friend Martin! I see. Still nonsensical! I am yet to see or read the petition though! Nonsense, respectfully!!”
