Muazu Issaka, the younger brother of the late Adams Mahama has called on the judiciary and the police to administer justice in prosecuting the gruesome murder of their beloved brother.
According to Issaka, who is also the spokesperson for the Adams family, the untimely death of his brother was a big blow to the family therefore finding and convicting the murderers would bring some relief to the family.
“We as a family are pleading with the judges at the court and other stakeholders to help us get justice for our brother. We want to know who is behind the death of our brother. We want to know who sent the suspects and why he sent them or why they decided to kill our brother,” Muazu Issaka said.
He continued : “We the entire family, we are really confused, his death shocked us because we were not expecting it but we take consolation in the only verse in the Quran which says ‘It is God who gives and it is He who takes”.
Adams Mahama had acid poured on him by two assailants and was confirmed dead at the Bolgatanga Regional Hospital in May this year. The motive and masterminds behind the murder are yet to be ascertained.
Currently, Gregory Afoko – brother of the national chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Paul Afoko- and one Musah are before court for allegedly intentionally and unlawfully causing the death of Adams on May 20, 2015 at Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region.
Muazu Issaka asked the national chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Paul Afoko to step aside and allow the law to take its course since his brother, Gregory Afoko is the principal suspect in the murder case.
“I want to appeal to the NPP that if Paul Afoko the national chairman of NPP believes he is not aware of what happened to our brother then I beg him to hold himself aside. He should not be intervening in the matter. It is really hurting that till now the guy has not been remanded but he is still in police custody. We are not happy at all,” he stated.
In another development, Muazu Issaka discredited a media report which sought to suggest that the Adams family had a clash with the Afoko family in court.
He said he and his family had left the court peacefully before the scuffle began on Tuesday.
“We have been hearing from the media that Adams Mahama family and Afoko family clashed at the court to insinuate that we were fighting at the court. I was in court today and it was never true.”
“After the court hearing, we –the Adam family- left but before we went into our car, we saw a lot of people insulting each other but they were not our family,” he noted.
