A communications team member with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ofori Baah is pleading with Ghanaians to desist from make hasty conclusions over the murder of late investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
Appearing on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5fm, he called on the public to allow the police conduct a professional job instead of stampeding them.
He expressed confidence in the police and said they will surely conduct a good work.
He described the murder of Suale as painful and sensitive adding, the case is delicate and the police would have to be professional in their duty.
The Minority on Monday organized a press conference and demanded the immediate arrest and prosecution of Kennedy Agyapong, the Assin Central MP over comments he made few months ago about the late Suale.
He expressed worry over the decision by the legislator to splash pictures of the late journalist on Net 2 TV and further incited the public against him.
According to the Minority, the action of the MP was in clear violation of Act 20(1) of the Criminal and Other Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).
They suggested Mr Agyapong bear some criminal responsibility for the death of Ahmed, and also bears criminal responsibility for instigating the public to beat up Ahmed and cause harm to Mr Anas for monetary reward.
The Minority also opined that, the MP should have been arrested and prosecuted for the public instigation of violence on the two men.
The Minority also slammed authorities for allowing Mr Agyapong to fly out of the country, without being apprehended.
But reacting to these claims, the NPP communicator said, the police cannot be stampeded in arresting people anyhow based on emotions and sentiments.
For him, the police employ different means in investigating issues hence we should allow them to do their professional work without any hindrance.
Meanwhile, the National Youth Organizer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Divine Nkrumah asked Ghanaians to desist from politicizing the matter.
Criminals he lamented do not look at the political affiliation of people when robbing, stealing or killing them.
He appealed to the security agencies in the country to beef up their work because we are currently in a state of insecurity.
‘’What happened to Suale could happen to every individual…we are in a dangerous state due what is happening in the country. A friend of mine was recently killed in a densely populated area and so if our security is on top of issues, we would not be experiencing these kind of crimes,’’ he added.
