Killing of int’l journalist reporting on Ghana’s security has exposed you – Mahama exposed Akufo-Addo

Former president John Dramani Mahama has said in a statement that,  It is truly ironic that a journalist working on a documentary on peace and security should die from an incident of highway robbery, which has become symptomatic of the violent crime currently consuming our country.

According to the statement issued on his behalf by his Special Aide, Joyce Bawa Mogtari on Sunday, August 29, that he received with utter shock, news of an attack on yet another passenger vehicle on the Tamale- Buipe road by armed robbers, leading to the murder of an international journalist, Syed Taaley Ahmed.

According to the media reports, the slain journalist, working with a crew from the London-based Muslim TV (MTA International), was in the country to work on a documentary assessing Ghana’s peace and security, when he met his untimely death. We wish to extend our deepest condolences to his family and MTA International, following the profound loss of their loved one.

However, Mahama said “

The now rampant criminal activity of armed robbers in the northern parts of the country is a cause for great concern, as they are fast becoming a daily occurrence. In recent times, these armed robbers have become so emboldened that they not only terrorize road users at night but in the daytime as well.

“Indeed, just days after this tragic incident, armed robbers, according to news reports, in broad daylight, attacked motorists traveling on the Bolgatanga-Walewale highway robbing them of all their valuables.”

The statement added “During President Mahama’s recent tour of the five regions in the north of the country to thank the people for their support in the 2020 elections, he met with chiefs, stakeholders, opinion leaders, and religious leaders who mentioned insecurity on the highways as one of the key matters of concern.
