Speculations about JB’s murder ‘disgusting’ - Kweku Baako

Kweku Baako lamented saying, “go to social media and even some main stream media; it is getting really disgusting and we’ve got to be very careful..."

 

He expressed worry that if these speculations are not checked, the outcome of Police investigations will not be accepted by the general public.

Speaking on Joy FM’s News File programme, Kweku Baako lamented saying, “go to social media and even some main stream media; it is getting really disgusting and we’ve got to be very careful. That in itself can also compromise the integrity of whatever findings the Police make because whatever we are doing, we are building a certain mind-set of the people not to believe whatever is put out there by the Police.”

Since the murder of JB Danquah last Tuesday, allegations have been thrown about in sections of the media and on social media regarding the masterminds behind the gruesome murder.

Presidential staffer, Stan Dogbe has been accused of ordering the killing of the MP; an allegation he has vehemently denied and condemned.

The Police on Saturday also asked the public to disregard such information because Mr. Dogbe was not involved in the case.

According to Kweku Baako, the only way such rumours and speculations will cease is for the Police to be updating the public regularly on the matter.

“There are many other stories out there relating to the arrest of this gentleman, what happened, what didn’t happen, where he was arrested, who gave the information and so on.”

“Well, my own checks show that about 90 percent of those stories out there are not true and that requires for an official Police update on the status of their investigations.”

He however, clarified that he is not asking the Police to divulge full details of the on-going investigations “because that will also jeopardize or compromise the investigations especially when they haven’t had all the perpetrators involved but there is need for a step by step information delivery to the public particularly, when speculation, rumour mongering, gossiping and indeed, political mischief have been unleashed out there.”

Regarding the state on security within the country, Kweku Baako said: “Honestly, I don’t think this country is on the brink of insecurity; that is not my view.”

“I don’t feel insecure but I feel concerned that certain things are happening and perhaps those things could have been avoided if we had put in place appropriate mechanisms.”
