District Chief Executive (DCE) for Asiakwa, Mr Bernard Baah Amoako, following the lynching of a teacher, George Somuah Bosompem has appealed to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante Appeatu to transfer more police officers to the area.
Speaking on Adom FM’s Dwaso Nsem show, Mr Baah, who condemned the act of six teenagers in the area, said the incident is alien to the Asiakwa community.
“I am appealing to the Inspector General of Police to transfer more police personnel to Asiakwa to enhance the efforts of the police available now which we find very inadequate,” he appealed.
Meanwhile, the six alleged teenage wee smokers who lynched the teacher, resulting in his death is set to appear before the Kibi District Magistrate Court in the Eastern region today, May 14, 2019.
Commenting on the issue, Mr Baah said “we are preparing to go to court today to hear what will be the decision on the matter and even though I am a teacher likewise my wife and we feel the pain of the teachers, I will urge them to rescind their boycott decision.”
Four of the attackers; Richard Anani, 18; Emmanuel Mireku, 18; Philip Okodie, 18; and Paul Boadu, 19, were remanded in police custody by the Kibi District Magistrate Court and set to reappear on May 14, 2019 after they lynched the teacher to death over snails.
