“I have issued a statement that I still stand by what I said that Akufo-Addo should be blamed for the death of Major Mahama. I am saying that when a government allows vigilante groups to vandalize state properties and attack state officials without condemnation to the point that NPP bigwigs came out to support their actions, then we should blame Akufo-Addo if people take the law into their hands”, he reiterated.
In his view, Akufo-Addo’s government lack the political will to crack down on party people who engaged in lawlessness and impunity.
He also maintained that, the situation might get out of hands in the near future just as political vigilante groups gave birth to Boko Haram militant group in Northern Nigeria.
“Government must rise up to the task and protect its citizens and if NPP government led by Akufo-Addo cannot protect us, it is better the President steps down for another government to take over,” he said.
