Keta MP’s refusal to be bribed at parliament cause of robbery attack –Gunu
The Volta Regional Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is alleging that the ongoing robbery attacks on Member of Parliament (M) for the Keta Constituency might be as a result of the MP’s “refusal to be bribed in parliament” during the election of Speaker.
According to James Gunu, the latest attack on the Keta MP – Kwame Dzudzorli Gakpe is quite surprising especially given the fragile political atmosphere the country is experiencing and the acrimonious manner the speakership race was contested.
In a Facebook post on Monday morning, January 11, 2021, sighted by TheVanguardgh.com, Mr. Gunu wrote, “Keta MP’s refusal to be bribed in parliament might have led to the attack on his business”.
The first time Keta legislator suffered latest attack on Sunday dawn when suspected robbers invaded the Rootsenaf Gas filling station belonging to the MP at Satsimadza near Agbozume on the Accra-Aflao road.
According to multiple media reports, a security man at post sustained gunshot wounds while the robbers made away with an amount of GH¢7,000, a pump-action gun and other unspecified items.
According to the MP, the attack was carried using a pistol that was stolen from him last year.
This is the second robbery attack on him weeks after he was attacked, beaten and robbed at his residence.
On December, 11th 2020 the MP was attacked by some unknown gunmen at his Anlo-Afiadenygba residence.
The MP including his parents and siblings were brutalized in that attack huge sums of monies were taken away from him by the thugs.
Following Sunday’s incident, the MP is calling for swift investigations and apprehension of the perpetrators.
He, however, believes the attack could be a targeted one.
