Minority leader in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, has called on the security to deal swiftly with persons involved in the shooting incident that occurred at the Kumasi headquarters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Violence he said is not acceptable in any democratic state hence the need for a national conversation on how best the state can formulate ideas to deepen our democratic practice, doing away with vigilantism.
He also spoke against what he termed as the inability of the state to deal ruthlessly with NPP vigilante group members who attacked a court and some appointees of President Akufo-Addo last year.
The failure he suggested has embolden some others to be taking the law into the own hands.
He recounted how he reminded the president of his role as the Commander-In-Chief of the armed forces and not the Invisible and Delta Forces.
Stressing on the Kumasi shooting incident, he said, ‘’in the matter of the happenings in Kumasi, the law must deal swiftly, decisively and ruthlessly with the persons associated with the event.’’
He insisted the incident points to law enforcement failure.
Haruna Iddrisu charged the media to be circumspect in their reportage.
Meanwhile, the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery has called on the police administration to bring the perpetrators of the Kumasi incident to book immediately.
He also called on political parties to desist from the blame game and the politicisation of security matters.
