The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has served notice that it will at all cost prosecute and jail politician cum businessman, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong for inciting violence against slain lead undercover journalist for Tiger Eye PI, Ahmed Suale.

According to the party’s National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, the NDC will ensure that Mr. Agyapong faces the law for violating section  20(1) of the Criminal and Other Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29).

According to him, the approach by the police in dealing with Mr. Agyapong who is seen by many as the prime suspect in the murder of the journalist is cosmetic and that the police seem afraid of the ruling New Patriotic Party’s Member of Parliament for the Assin Central Constituency.

‘’By section  20(1) of the Criminal and Other Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29), a person who, directly or indirectly, instigate, commands, counsel, procures, solicit, or in any manner purposely aids, facilitates, encourages, or promotes, whether by a personal act or presence or otherwise, and a person who does an act for the purposes of aiding, facilitating, encouraging, or promoting the commission of criminal offence by any other person, whether known or unknown, certain, or uncertain, commits the criminal offence of abetting that criminal offence, and of abetting the other person in respect of that criminal offence’’ the NDC said.

According the NDC, the police should have sought a travel embargo on Mr. Agyapong, arrest and keep him for investigations.

They have vowed to let loose, the full force of the law on Mr. Agyapong, no matter how long it will take.
