Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa has called for an independent, credible, and impartial investigation into last Friday’s armed invasion in his constituency.
According to Ablakwa, we must resolve that the violent invasion at the dawn of Friday doesn’t recur and that never should the peace and stability of the Volta Region and our dear country be so threatened.
He stated that, he spent the day assessing fall outs from the bloody incursion in his beloved constituency adding that his deepest condolences goes out to all of those who lost their lives.
The legislator also paid a visit to the Battor Catholic Hospital to personally convey his gratitude to the doctors and nurses for saving the lives of the injured.
To him he is glad to hear that, the five police personnel and two other civilians who suffered injuries are responding to treatment.
Ablakwa explained that, it is a good progress to note that, the two pickup trucks absconded with during the invasion have been retrieved.
He however maintained that he is exceedingly frightened that the cache of weapons taken away from the two police stations in Aveyime and Mepe have still not been located.
“We can’t afford to have all those weapons in the wrong hands.”
“I will continue to urge calm and full cooperation with law enforcement even as I humbly appeal to security personnel to exhibit high professionalism in their response.” He appealed.
In his conclusion remarks Ablakwa says he shall continue to advocate for a united peaceful Ghana where all citizens have equal opportunities; and shall continue to remain an ardent believer in that Pan-African dream that one day, all these artificial boundaries will no longer be in the way of true continental African unity.
