According to the President, all measures put in place to to curb the spread of Covid-19 amongst students and in schools pointed to the efforts to protect lives of “all those involved in the phased re-openings of our schools, and I will not renege on my obligation towards either our children or their parents.

My Innocent Clients Cannot Even Hurt A Fly – Lawyer For 31 Suspected Secessionists

Published

on


Lawyer for the 31 persons who were arrested for being part of the riot undertaken by the Homeland Study Group Foundation, Theophilus Donkor have insisted his clients are innocent.

Speaking to Citi’s Eyewitness News, Mr Donkor noted that these individuals were just at the wrong place at the wrong time, stressing that security personnel only got to the scene after the real perpetrators had fled.

“They have nothing to do with any secessionist group in the Volta Region. No one has recruited them into any secessionist group. These are innocent Ghanaians who were going about their lawful duties.”

“Some of them are Nigerians, others were travelling from Ashaiman to Accra, others from the Volta Region to Accra, when they were arrested. The time they were arrested is very important. The police got to the scene at the time the real perpetrators had fled, so these people just happened to have been at the wrong place at the wrong time. Nothing incriminating was found on any of them, these ones cannot even hurt a fly,” he insisted.

The 31 persons were on Monday, September 28, 2020, charged on three counts of conspiracy to commit crime of rioting, substantive offence of rioting and being at an unlawful place.

Deal With The Secessionist Group And Stop Expecting Comments From The NDC – Ablakwa Slams Gov’t

Published

on


Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has admonished government for their failure to be on top of issues regarding the Western Togoland secessionist saga.

Speaking on Citi’s Eyewitness News, he noted that calls by the government for other political parties including the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to speak up on the issue is needless as they have to focus on the substantive issue and quit the cheap politics.

“This is a very grave matter which should not be reduced to cheap political football. Is that all you can tell us, as a ruling party? Lives have been lost. The police commander is fighting for his life, other people are hospitalized and all you can tell us is to hold a press conference and say you want to hear the NDC also condemn the act? Is that what we are looking for now? This is not the time to engage in such cheap political stance. You are in charge of our national security architecture and you have all the weapons and resources and all the taxes. It is your duty to protect us and maintain our territorial integrity and to make sure that we are safe,” he said.

He added that “never in our history have we had elaborate national security architecture and portfolios all over the place and the least we expect is for an insurgency to be taking place. Our government has failed abysmally.”
