Man accuses former MP Kofi Jumah of assault

Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Asokwa Maxwell Kofi Jumah has been invited by police for allegedly spearheading a brutal attack on a middle-aged man.

The victim, identified as Jamel Agha, said Kofi Jumah and six others accused him of stealing a mobile phone belonging to the former Kumasi Mayor and consequently subjected him to hours of severe beatings.

The 47-year-old man who spots severe bruises and lacerations on his body says the former MP and his body guards beat him with sticks while the MP pointed a gun at him.

Luv FM’s Erastus Asare Donkor reports the Criminal Investigations Department of the police invited Kofi Jumah for questioning.

The former MP has denied assaulting the victim.

He told the police that man was being lynched but he intervened to save the victim’s life.
