He explained that, a few days after the incidence, chief inspector Robert Atsutse of Akyempim police station where the case was initially reported to, called him that the district commander has invited him (the assembly man) and so the chief inspector gave him a sealed envelope to be sent to the commander. Unknowingly, the content of the sealed envelope was a wild complaints made against him by the suspects and as at now, no arrest has been made by the police he lamented.
“I am highly disappointed in the chief inspector Robert Atsutse for sending me with a case filed against me by my enemies meanwhile, no arrest has been made since the incidence happened.”
Hon. Joseph Akomiah appealed to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) James Opong Boanuh to intervene in the matter for justice to prevail.
