Asawase incident must never happen again - Akufo-Addo

  |   Ghana News

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has assured the entire country and, indeed, residents of Asawase, in the Ashanti Region, that, the recommendations that will be made by the Committee of Inquiry set up to investigate the alleged killing of seven (7) young men by the Police will be fully enforced and implemented.

Speaking on the matter for the first time, President Akufo-Addo, on Sunday, 22nd July, 2018, at the sod-cutting ceremony of the 1-Village-1-Dam Integrated Agriculture with Renewable Energy for Poverty Eradication Project, in Savelugu, in the Northern Region, indicated that disturbances of such nature constitute a threat to the peace and development of the nation.

It will be recalled that last week, residents, predominantly youth from Asawase protested vehemently about the alleged killing of seven of their peers by the Police. According to the youth, the seven were allegedly mistaken by the police for eight masked armed robbers who had earlier attacked a sprinter bus and, in the process, shot and killed a police officer at Ayirebikrom, near Manso Nkwanta, in the Amasie West District of the Ashanti Region.
