Ghana: Adams murder: Height of man’s inhumanity

Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu – Minority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu says murderers of the Upper East Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party will not go scot-free.

He says no matter what happens the murderers will be made to face the music, regardless of how long it takes.

Speaking on Adom FM’s morning show “Dwaso Nsem’, the Member of Parliament for Suame said he cannot imagine how a human being will perpetrate such heinous act against his fellow.

“Adams Mahama’s death is the height of man’s inhumanity to man. It is an abomination that someone will purpose in their hearts to carry out such an act.

“However, I am hopeful that the perpetrators of this crime will not go scot-free, they will be found and punished accordingly. Once God lives, the punishment they deserve will be meted out to them, here on earth and even afterwards”, he added.

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu believes that no amount of wrong committed by Adams Mahama can be justified with the atrocious murder of the chairman, stressing that “whatever it is whether politics or issues concerning normal life, you cannot do this”.

The people who murdered Adams Mahama will never be free, if they think that they will live with their family, wife and children in peace when they have murdered an innocent person, then they should think again, he said.

He cautioned party members to be guarded in their utterances and preach messages that will unite and bring peace into the party.

He also asked party communicators who are not well informed about issues to refrain from commenting on them until they are certain that their observations they are making are accurate.

He indicated that the party will only be victorious if they join forces and work together as one.

“Some people over exaggerate their strength in the party. The NPP’s strength alone cannot bring them to power, the floating voters are needed but “how will we be able to do this if we are against each other”, he quizzed.

Without unity the party cannot be made attractive for other people who intend to join and the victory that they all seek in 2016 will not materialise if party members rise against each other, he added.

He was confident that the recent “dark clouds” hovering over the party will clear and the NPP will emerge strong and united again.

The Upper East Regional Chairman died last week at the Bolgatanga Regional hospital after some assailants attacked and poured acid on him.

The motive for the murder is unknown but a week before his murder, there was a violent confrontation in the Upper East Region which resulted in the foiling of a planned meeting between the party’s National Chairman and General Secretary and other regional executives of the party.

Adams Mahama had indicated he was not aware of the planned meeting and wondered why the two national executives will organise a party meeting in his region, with his executives and would not inform him about it.

However, Paul Afoko’s younger brother, Gregory Afoko has been accused as one of the attackers who poured acid on Adams Mahama.

He has been brought before court on possible charges of murder.

Meanwhile, some regions, Eastern and Central, have passed a vote of no confidence in Paul Afoko and Kwabena Agyapong.

They are demanding their resignation. The decision was taken Monday at a meeting held concurrently in all regions.

Ashanti and the Northern Regions are yet to take any such decision.
