Minority calls for Kennedy Agyapong's arrest
Minority in Parliament has called for the immediate arrest of their colleague Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Mr Kennedy Agyapong.
“Nevertheless we call on the law enforcement agencies to promptly cause Mr, Agyapong’s arrest and prosecution. We also call on President Nana Akufo-Addo’s government to roundly condemn the conduct of Mr Agyapong,” he said.
The call is in connection with the gruesome murder of undercover journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
The lead investigative journalist with Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Tiger Eye PI was assassinated on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at Madina in the Greater Accra region.
He was shot three times, twice in the chest and in the neck.
His death comes months after Mr Agyaong splashed his pictures on NET2 TV calling for Ahmed's beating over his role in unearthing football corruption in Ghana football.
At a press conference on Monday, the minority spokesperson on Defence and Interior, Mr James Agalga condemned the Assin Central lawmaker for exposing the deceased journalist to harm.
He therefore called for the immediate arrest of Mr Agyaong and subsequent prosecution.
“Mr Agyapong’s conduct and the obvious lack of action by the law enforcement agencies leads to only one conclusion that Mr Agyapong is above the laws of Ghana and he enjoys immunity, free from prosecution.
“Chillingly the government of Nana Akufo-Addo is dead silent on the matter, watched on as Mr Agyapong makes nonsense of the laws of Ghana. This cannot be allowed to continue, President Akufo-Addo must show leadership”, he stated.
The group added that when the House returns from recess, they (Minority) will commence the process to drag Mr Agyapong before the privileges committee for sanctions.
