A sister to the suspect in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kumasi office shooting says she has been receiving threats from persons believed to be part of the fuming youth who attacked her brother.
Samira Hussein, sister to the suspect in the Kumasi NDC shooting has disclosed she has been overwhelmed by threats from persons she believes were part of the thugs who visited an attack on her brother.
She witnessed the stabbing of her brother last week by persons alleged to be relatives of the deceased NDC supporter.
YEN.com.gh has learnt that unidentified characters have been calling her phone to threaten her with death.
Her brother, Suleman Hussein, notoriously known as Akon, was declared wanted by police for his alleged involvement in the shooting incident which killed 34-year-old Abdul Wasiu.
Angry youth on Thursday, April 25, 2019, besieged the residence of the suspect at Kenyasi-Abirem where they allegedly assaulted him.
Following the threatening calls, Samira Hussein has indicated that she’s living in fear and wants police protection.
“After the incident, I have been receiving calls from unknown numbers and private numbers. The moment I hear the voice, I just cut the call. I listened to one guy and he said they made a mistake and that they should have attacked me first before my brother. They should have not allowed me to move. I have been seeing strange faces around our house. People are surveying our house,” she decried.
Some men believed to be relatives and friends of the deceased attacked Suleman Hussein in a suspected reprisal attack.
The victim is now at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital after he suffered multiple stab wounds.
The irate youth on Thursday afternoon took over the residence of the victim at Kenyasi-Abirem to demand his whereabouts from his family.
The suspect’s sister revealed, the youth numbering about 20 forced their way into her brother’s room and stabbed him multiple times with knives.
The family reported the incident to the police who later came to his rescue and succeeded in dispersing the youth.
The shooting incident occurred in February when the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, the General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, and the Regional Executive Committee met at the office to address issues between the two factions.
The attack resulted in the death of 34-year old Abdul Wasiu Iddris and one other injured.
The suspects are 40-year-old Dauda Ibrahim aka Wayo, Abdul Ganiu, 37, and Samuel Agyin alias Rock, 32..
The three, Hussein Bari alias Warrior, Midhima, Damos and Abu Taliban reported themselves to the regional police.
Police investigations also mentions the following suspects; Sanni Mohammed alias Commando, Wayo, Element, Jah Rule, Petit, Fayiz, Mallam and Rock.
The police have also questioned the Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, Joseph Yamin and a former Chief Executive for the Ejisu Juabeng Municipality, Afrifa Yamoah Ponko.
They say four alleged members of pro-National Democratic Congress group, Hawks, are suspected to be behind the attack at the party’s Ashanti Regional office in Kumasi that left one dead and another injured.
