Central Regional Police Commander, DCOP Habiba Twumasi-Sarpong, has appealed to the general public to volunteer information to help their investigation of claims that the Agona West MP, Cynthia Mamle Morrison has been targeted for assassination.
“Investigations are ongoing, and I will continue to engage the general public to continue to give us information. Police thrive on information, so I implore everyone to give us information no matter how little” she tells Joy News in an interview.
This comes after 4 heavily armed suspected men, Saddick Abubakar, Gordon Kunya, Isaac Addea, and Dauda Fatua, were arrested and detained by the Swedru Divisional patrol team on Saturday at a Hotel in Swedru.
The Police found in their possession a knife, a cutlass, two packets of Razzler and two opened bank cheques worth GH¢5000.00.
Campaign team members of the Agona West MP say their intelligence indicates the men were hired to kill the Minister.
But DCOP Twumasi says the Central Region is generally safe and assures residents of maximum protection.
“We have intensified our patrols and deployment, and we’re on top of investigations. So I want to assure residents that we did all the confidence-building patrol in order to boost their faith in the Service and the confidence that we are on top of the situation” she said.
Meanwhile, the suspects are being prepared by the Police to appear before court.
