CID HEADQUARTERS: "Arresting Kennedy Agyapong Will Save Us Another Ahmed Suale" - AB&M Legal Consult
Lawyers for the National Communications Officer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), AB&M Legal Consult have officially written to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service seeking for the arrest of Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Agyapong over his alleged threats on an Accra-based radio station.
According to the legal team, its client, Sammy Gyamfi has picked up intelligence which indicates the MP has hired some thugs to deal him mercilessly.
In a suit sighted by ThinkNews Online, it said “Having regard to recent history and the notorious fact that a prominent investigative journalist by name Ahmed Suale was shot and murdered in cold blood by some unknown criminals following similar threats made on his life by the same Mr. Kennedy Agyapong; our client, as a law-abiding citizen feels compelled to formally write to you and lodge a complaint against the said Mr. Kennedy Agyapong. This will avert a possible repeat of what happened to the late Ahmed Suale when his life was threatened by Mr. Kennedy Agyapong on that very ‘Ekosisen’ platform and other media platforms"
The suit further added following the shocking demise of Investigative Journalist, the Ahmed Suale, the National Communications Officer for the NDC says he feels threatened hence lodging an official complaint to the police.
It will be recalled, the MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong during an interview on Asempa FM mentioned he will crash Sammy Gyamfi if he does not stop fanning and calling for violence.
The suit said "While speaking in the Twi language on the said programme, Mr. Kennedy Agyapong stated among other things that, if our client does proceed with his advocacy on national issues in a particular manner, he shall in a matter of three seconds organize his thugs to beat and or finish our client mercilessly”
The NDC’s communicator says he is requesting for investigations to commence into the conduct of Mr. Kennedy Agyapong in accordance with the Criminal Offenses Act of Ghana, 1960 (Act 29).
