Spokesman for the erstwhile Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC), Osaahene Major (Rtd) Kojo Boakye-Djan says Ghana is no longer safe for everyone.

He blames the security authorities for their inability to convict criminals which have led to others engaging in the nefarious act.

Speaking on the recent killing of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale, Major Boakye-Djan (Rtd) noted that “There is a growing sense of impunity in the country. When these things happen, because we are unable to deal with the culprits, others are emboldened to do same.”

“The efforts of the police or the government or whoever is in charge, do not lead to criminal conviction and that is the worrying thing for me,” he said.

“J.B. Danquah-Adu, the MP, was killed in his home, and so far, nobody has been convicted for it. We are all not safe in the country. Why is it that we have not had a single criminal conviction for any of these things that are going on?” he said in an interview with Accra FM.
