Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has said there is “something strange” happening in Ghana, as far as the recent spate of killings and deaths are concerned, the latest being the murder of Abuakwa North MP J B Danquah Adu.
“I just don’t understand. The killings and deaths are becoming one too many. Both children and adults are dying. It’s not normal,” Mr Kufuor told Kwadwo Asare-Baffour Acheampong (KABA) on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen political talk show on Tuesday February 9.
Making reference to some recent accidents and killings in some parts of the country, Mr Kufuor said the spate is becoming abnormal.
Mr Danquah Adu was murdered Tuesday dawn. He was found by the police lying in a pool of blood in his bedroom at his Shiashie residence in the national capital, Accra. His assailant(s) got access to him through his front window via a ladder. He was survived by his wife and two children. The Police have opened investigations into the killing. Five suspects: two females and three males have been arrested for interrogation by the Police, who have urged the public to provide any information they may have that could help unravel the murder mystery.
Mr Kufuor expressed his condolence to the family of the late MP, saying: “It’s very painful because I just was with him this Saturday at Oseadeeyo’s funeral.”
“I’m crestfallen, and dumbfounded…if there is anything bad coming into this country, God should stop it for us…I don’t understand….something is happening, the killings and deaths are becoming too many….it is not normal death, it is not good, I don’t get it….we plead with the securities to really look into it, it’s becoming one too many …Ghana, the NPP and the family have lost a great treasure…. He had a lot in store for him…” Mr Kufuor, who appointed the late MP as a deputy Minister in his government, said.
