While sympathising with the bereaved family, Prof Naana Opoku-Agyemang indicated that the state of insecurity in the country is increasingly causing Ghanaians to live in fear and that it should no longer be tolerated.
Citing a number of similar unresolved killings, she said, “It is shocking, some of the things that are happening in this country and it is clear that these killings and violent acts are getting out of hand” she said.
Professor Opoku-Agyemang, briefly suspended her campaign tour of the Ahafo Region to visit the bereaved family at Mim.
She observed that it was absolutely devastating for a breadwinner of a family to be killed in such a gruesome manner.
John Mahama’s running mate stated further that the security architecture must do more to protect citizens and safeguard the stability of Ghana.
