Security Expert Col. Festus Aboagye says the state must take responsibility for the killings of individuals during the December 2020 elections.
He further rebuked the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joe Osei Owusu who likened the dead people to criminals in an interview the lawmaker granted to TV3’s Komla Klutse.
According to Joe Osei Owusu who is also the MP – elect for Bekwai “ It is not fair for people to talk to an event that happened without going back. I think it is not fair to insist that because somebody died, because if he was in the process of committing a crime it becomes an issue no!?. Do we commiserate with the families of armed robbers who shoot? Were they in the process of committing a crime? Let us determine that. If I am wrongly killed, I deserve sympathy but if I am shot in the process of preventing a crime I deserve that”. He stated.
Seven people lost their lives in areas where elections were held including Odododiodioo, Jomoro, Tachiman South and Ablekumah West constituencies.
