The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has said that accusing the Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constitution, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong of the murder of investigative journalist, Armed Hussein Suale is unfair.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, it is wrong for Ghanaians to be humiliating the Assin Central lawmaker for murdering the journalist. He however added that he [Kennedy Agyapong] can be humiliated for the “threat of harm on Armed Suale” which subsequently led to the gunning down of the journalist some two years ago.
“Humiliating him for the murder will not be fair. But at least, humiliating him for the threat of harm on Armed Suale, that one is fair so he should accept his responsibility…,” he said on Metro TV’s ‘Good Morning Ghana’ program on Thursday, May 27, 2021 and monitored by GhanaVanguard.com.
Sammy Gyamfi further accused the Akufo Addo-led government of not doing enough to bring the killers of Armed Suale to justice. He believes that if as at now the killers have not been apprehended, at least the one [Kennedy Agyapong] who threatened him with harm should be dealt with.
“With regards to Armed Suale’s murder, government could have taken some actions. At least, if for nothing at all, the one who openly and publicly threatened him with harm should have been held liable, should have been prosecuted by now. That’s the point I’m making…,” he indicated.
Ghanaians have been humiliating, insulting and calling for the imprisonment of the Assin Central lawmaker and businessman since Armed Suale was gunned down by two assailants on January 16, 2019.
Armed Suale’s death came days after the MP publicly displayed his images on tv and said: “That’s him. His other picture is there as well, make it big. If you meet him somewhere, slap him… beat him, whatever happens, I’ll pay.”
