Paramount Chief of Essikado condemns assault on Connect FM journalist by police

The Omanhen of the Essikadu Traditional Area, Nana Kobina Nketsiah V has charged the Ghana Police Service to prosecute persons behind the assault on Connect FM’s Eric Nana Gyetuah just as they did to embattled Metropolitan Chief Executive of Sekondi Takoradi Abdul Mumin Issah.

He observed that such sense of urgency will only demonstrate to Ghanaians that the Ghana Police Service is impartial and upholds its “mantra of service in integrity”.

Suspended Sekondi Takoradi Metropolitan Chief Executive Abdul Mumin Issah on Wednesday February 2, 2022 violated road traffic regulations and went ahead to verbally abuse a police officer who had arrested him.

Abdul Mumin Issah was, all but immediately, sent to court and is currently on bail.

Nana Kobina Nketsiah V believes the Ghana Police Service must be seen as treating all cases equally.

“In one instance, the police has gone to court… I so pray that perpetrators in the dastardly act of assault are also taken to court…”.

The Essikadu Omanhen was speaking on the visit of the Board Chairman of Media General Kojo Yankah to his palace.

Mr Kojo Yankah was on a working visit to Media General’s Subsidiary Connect fm. The visit was to afford Mr Yankah the opportunity to solicit for assessment from authorities in the region as well as the listeners on the performance of Connect FM.

Nana Kobina Nketsia V expressed surprise it had to take the Inspector General Police COP George Akufo Dampare to act when the incident happened and questioned the relevance “of the police here”(Western region).

“Is there no police here, why must we go to the IGP before we can see action taken”.
