The Minority in Parliament is calling on the security agencies to immediately arrest and prosecute the Member of Parliament for the Assin Central Constituency for allegedly “instigating” the murder of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale, who was a member of the Tiger Eye PI team.
Addressing a press conference today (Monday), Ranking Member for the Interior and Defence Committee, James Agalga said the decision by the MP to unmask the journalist by putting his pictures on Net2 Television and inciting the public against him was unfortunate.
This he posited was unlawful and abetment of crime.
“It is on this basis that we state that Kennedy Agyapong appears to bear some criminal responsibility for the death of Ahmed and he also bears criminal responsibility for instigating the public to beat up Ahmed and cause harm to Anas for monetary reward.”
Commenting on the posture of the MP after the death of the journalist, Mr Agalga said this smacks of “pomposity” and “impunity” as he went from media house to media house justifying his actions and accusing Anas and his lawyer.
The Minority further called on President Akufo-Addo to show leadership
They are called on the law enforcement agencies to arrest Mr Agyapong and prosecute him.
“We call on the law enforcement agencies to promptly cause Mr.Agyapong’s arrest and prosecute him for his actions,” Mr Agalga said.
