Ace Journalist and Editor In Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako has lamented the lack of prosecutions with regards to violence in the ongoing voter registration exercise.
Speaking on News File on Saturday, Kweku Baako blamed both the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party for the mess being created.
“What happened to charges and trials? Because we treat it as a political thing, it has theirs…, don’t enforce, don’t go too extreme. You arrest them, you bail them… no prosecution, no conviction, no sentence, we’ve sown the seeds of impunity, that culture of impunity,” he lamented.
A 28-year old man was killed in Banda, Bono Region after a scuffle was sparked by some hoodlums believed to be associates of the New Patriotic Party. He was stabbed to death.
The MP for the constituency, Ahmed Ibrahim blamed the police and the soldiers assigned to the area for taking sides instead of doing their job.
“Those who attacked me personally days ago are still walking around, they are well known NPP people, I have given their names to the police but up till now, nothing has happened. And the Police know, many of the residents here have lost confidence in the military and the police because even though they are to protect us, they are only protecting the NPP candidate and his team,” the MP lamented in an interview with Class FM.
“Now we are talking of a young man who is supposed to have been killed, murdered. I appeal to the Ghana Police, please, it isn’t as if it’s the beginning, this might not be the last too. So please can they investigate this particular incident. Arrest, apprehend the perpetrators and for once prosecute, it’s important.”
