Murder: Minority charges police to pursue Bugri Naabu


Mr Bugri Naabu[/caption] The Minority in Parliament is convinced the Northern Regional chairman of the governing party, Daniel Bugri Naabu has opened his mouth wide enough to be invited to give evidence in the murder of Adams Mahama. The former New Patriotic Party Upper East Regional chairman was gruesomely murdered in 2015 in an acid attack. Some people are standing trial for the murder including Gregory Afoko, brother of NPP’s suspended National Chairman. Following last week’s a mudslinging incident between Bugri Naabu and Otiko Afisa Djaba who is the Minister of Gender and Social Protection, the former accused the latter, as well as the Upper East Regional Minister and Builsa District Chief Executive of plotting the murder of Adams Mahama. The Regional Minister has denied the allegation and issued a 48-hour ultimatum to the maverick regional chairman to retract and apologise, which elapses today, May 10. But the Minority Leader in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu wants the police to take interest in the latest disclosure by Bugri Naabu. “Mr Naabu had alleged that the three had had series of secret meetings at which the plot to murder Mr Adams, the Upper East Regional Chairman was hatched,” he said in the statement. “We in the Minority consider these developments as a grave concern as they pose a veritable threat to our democracy and good governance.” According to him, the development is crucial to the determination of the matter currently pending before the court.
