    DR. JOSEPH DANQUAH, A POLITICAL OPPONENT OF THE DEPOSED PRESIDENT OF GHANA, DR. NKRUMAH, WAS REMEMBERED ON THE ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH IN PRISON IN FEBRUARY LAST YEAR AT A MEMORIAL SERVICE IN ACCRA ON SUNDAY.

    FORMER DETAINEES AND OTHERS WHO HAD BEEN IN HIDING BEFORE LAST WEEK'S COUP WERE IN THE BIG CROWD AT ACCRA'S RIDGE CHURCH. THE CONGREGATION, WHICH ALSO INCLUDED DR. DANQUAH'S WIDOW, FILLED THE CHURCH TO CAPACITY AND OVERFLOWED TO THE LAWN OUTSIDE.
