Jomoro MP, residents want Prez to comment on the death of Aloo, petitions IGP


The Member of Parliament for Jomoro, Dorcas Afo Toffey and residents of Jomoro have petitioned the Inspector General of Police, George Akuffo Dampare, over the death of Shadrach Aloo at the West Hills Mall.

The MP has also admonished President Akufo-Addo to immediately issue a statement on the killing of Aloo.

She said just as the President commented the Geirge Floyd saga, he owes it a duty to comment on this incident.


Addressing a press conference at Jomoro organised by the family and 
residents, the MP asked the President to instruct the IGP to investigate the matter.

“Just as the President issued a statement in the case of George Floyd, a black American who was killed in a similar way, we expect and demand that President Nana Addo Danquah issue a statement to commensurate with the family of Shadrach. The IGP should as a matter of urgency cause a full-scale investigation into the murder of the deceased by his officers and culprits at the West Hills mall with respect to the event on the 31st of January 2023.”

“The office of the IGP should also initiate or cause to be initiated disciplinary and criminal proceedings on any officer and persons found culpable in the murder of the deceased, Shadrach Aloo”, she demanded.

“The office of the IGP must initiate or cause to be initiated negotiations with Shadrach’s family to cover the cost and the financial burden brought on the family due to the recklessness of your officers and negotiate reasonable and appropriate monetary compensation to the family for the loss of life and for support for the four-year-old Son who has many years to live without the father”, she added.

MP Dorcas Afo Toffey added that Article 15 (1) and (2) of the 1992 constitution said that the constitution provides in no uncertain terms for the respect for human dignity, therefore urged the police to give a firm assurance that such brutalities shall become a thing of the past.

She said before the death of the young man,
he was preparing to travel to Germany and had only visited the mall to buy some items when he was unfortunately killed.
