BOST MD has been granted bail on his own pledge as Police in Tema investigate allegations that Alfred Obeng Boateng contracted some people to threaten to kill Duncan Amoah.

Per reports, BOST MD Alfred Obeng Boateng was granted  bail, after investigators from the Tema Regional Police Command invited the two for interrogation on March 13, 2018, into the alleged death threats.

According to a TV3 reporter, BOST MD and Duncan Amoah were locked up over 40 minutes in a meeting with the Police at the Tema Region where the matter is being handled.

Duncan Amoah also disclosed after the meeting that he has tendered in all evidence regarding the death on his life to the police.

BOST MD Alfred Obeng Boateng has however, sued  Duncan Amoah over allegations of death threats.

In a suit filed at an Accra High Court, Alfred Obeng says the unfounded allegations have damaged his professional reputation for which he seeks damages to the tune of 5 million cedis.

Two million cedis damages against the defendant for damaging his professional reputation; 2 million cedis for damaging his social reputation and 1 million cedis for the psychological trauma the death threat publication has had on him.

Alfred Obeng is also asking the court to restrain Duncan Amoah, his agents and assign from publishing allegations of death threats against him.

“ The plaintiff/applicant herein praying this honourable court for an order of injunction restraining the defendant/ respondent herein, his agents, assigns, workmen, and all persons claiming through or under him from further publishing or broadcasting any word or words or images in any manner whatsoever to the effect that plaintiff had coopted, engaged, contracted or solicited the services of any person or persons to curse, insult, attack, threaten the life of the defendant or threaten to kill defendant in three days pending a final determination to this suit upon terms more particularly stated in the accompanying affidavit.”
