The president has condemned the murder “unreservedly” and called on the security agencies to look into the matter.

I condemn the act unreservedly, and extend my condolences to his family. I expect the police to bring to book, as soon as possible, the perpetrators of this heinous crime. Once again, my heartfelt condolences.”
Akuffo-Addo’s comments has ignited a fire of hope among a section of Ghanaians who believed that he had spoken reassuringly.
For instance, an Instagram user, Sara, thanked the president for his message:

clement347: “Thank u mr. President. All to book now!!.”
Meanwhile, some Ghanaians have slammed Anas for linking the death of his colleague to MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong.
They claimed Anas’ criticism was baseless, and advised him to let the law work.
But Agyapong has distanced himself from the murder case, explaining that the deceased was irrelevant to his life.
In other news, a prophet, Cosmos Affran Walker, has said some assailants from the Northern Region would kill the MP.
