Family of Gregory Afoko, the prime suspect in the trial of the murder of former Upper East Regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) Adams Mahama has accused the Bureau of National Investigations(BNI) of a deliberate attempt to kill him, OccupyGh.com reports.
The suspect family explained that, Mr Afoko is still in the cells of BNI despite satisfying the bail condition set out by an Accra High Court.
According to report, Afoko’s family is set to petition two more international bodies over what it says is the unlawful holding of Mr Afoko.
It has already petitioned Amnesty International and says it will send another one to the Human Rights without Frontiers and Human Rights Watch.
In an interview with Starr News the spokesperson for the family of Gregory Afoko cited that, they are doing everything possible to make sure Mr. Afoko is safe.
The spokesperson Robert Asekabta, said,“We intend to petition Human Rights Without Frontiers and Human Rights Watch, these are the institutions we’ll be petitioning. He’s presently in the BNI office, they don’t even allow us to visit him any longer and apart from that his blood was taken forcefully and they did some analysis and we said why such a blood test because he didn’t complain about any sickness. Who the medical doctor is we don’t know, why won’t you allow our attorney to se him, his relatives we were not even allowed to see him.
He added, His life is really threatened if he’s been sent to the hospital heavily guarded and armed men, we don’t understand the situation. You’ve held this man for almost five years and found no reason for that. We are afraid for his life and we believe that those who are concerned simply want to take away Gregs life.”
