The embattled New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin North, Kennedy Agyapong, who has been charged with treason said he is prepared to die as he arrived in court moments ago.

The case has been moved to the Cocoa Affairs Court at Adjabeng, Accra.

Hundreds of NPP supporters and some national executive members, who have been waiting since morning, have thronged the court premises to follow proceedings in a case where the MP has been charged with treason.

Citi News' Eunice Dufie said a while ago that the case is ongoing.

'He looks angry…' she reported.
'I'll not say anything, I want to die, I want to die',' our correspondent quoted the beleaguered MP to have said as he stepped out of a police van.

Earlier, supporters of the party and officials stormed the Fast Track High Court and the police had to barricade the main entrance to prevent them from breaking the gates leading to the court premises.

The embattled lawmaker has been in the custody of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) over the last 48 hours.
