THE EXECUTIVE Director of Centre for Victims of Injustice, Ghana (CenVI,GH), Mr Felix Nyaaba, has learnt with shock and dismay the robbery attack at the Kwabenya District Police Station in the Greater Accra Region which led to the death of Inspector Emmanuel Ashilevi, last Sunday January 21, 2018.
Insp. Ashilevi was attacked alongside other police men who sustained various degrees of injuries at the station while manning the station on night duty.
As a result, the perpetrators were able to free their partners who were on detention for various offenses against the State.
Reacting to the development, Mr Nyaaba condemned the act and called on the government to as a matter of urgency explore all legal and legitimate means to apprehend the perpetuators.
“While commiserating with the police command and officers of the Ghana Police Service on this sad loss, we call for a deep investigation into the incident.
“We also wish to express our sincere and heartfelt condolence to the bereaved family, especially the parents, wife and children,” he stated.
“CenVI,GH wishes to take this opportunity to call on President Nana Akufo-Addo to exercise his authority to end this impunity which is spreading widely across the country.
“The government should also take steps to equip all police stations and other security facilities with modern gadgets including close circuit television cameras to help in the fight against attacks on security installments,” Mr Nyaaba stated.
