The parliamentary ranking member on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, is decrying the manner of the disappearance of Mahran Mustapha Baajour, a Lebanese businessman who was reportedly arrested upon his arrival in Ghana.
The minority in Parliament is demanding government action in what they are calling, an abduction and the disappearance of the Lebanese businessman.
In a press release on Sunday, March 24, 2019 and signed by Ablakwa, the minority demanded government to break its "unhelpful silence" over the abduction and disappearance of Mustapha Baajour.
The statement read: “The Minority is reliably informed that immediately after arriving at the Kotoka International Airport on December 13, 2018, Mahran Mustapha Baajour and his two Ghanaian hosts who welcomed him at the airport were arrested at the precincts of the airport just when they were about departing in their Toyota salon vehicle with registration number GN 6126 - 15 by persons claiming to be operatives of the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI)."
After all three were kept in detention for six days in violation of Ghanaian law, our understanding is that Mahran's two hosts, one Razak Abdul and another were then released as free men while Mahran was kept in detention."
According to the minority, Baajour's family are having a hard time believing the denials and claims of innocence by Ghana's government when contacted.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has sighted a video of little Chogtaa, the little blue-eyed girl whose curative operation for dumbness and deafness made headlines in Ghana from February 2019, hearing for the first time.
Little Chogtaa's mother Florence, through the Afi Antonio Foundation, managed to get help for her daughter in South Africa where doctors tried to get the little girl to hear and talk again.
