I didn’t trust police to give them 28 shells – Sam George

Ningo-Prampram MP, Sam George, has defended his reason for submitting bullet shell casings to the Justice Emile Short Commission of Inquiry investigating the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence rather than the police.

Mr George presented some 28 shells to the commission as evidence of shots fired in the melee on his first day of appearance before the Commission.

On day two of his testimony, Mr George noted on Tuesday, 26 February 2019 that his trust in the police had waned because the Legon police station refused to take his statement after reporting that he had been assaulted, therefore, his decision to present the shells to the commission rather.

In addition, he said there were policeman at the scene when he was assaulted yet none of them came to his rescue.

“I stated before this Commission how my trust in the Ghana Police Service had been shaken by them standing aloof when I was being assaulted even though there were armed policemen who could have intervened [but] they didn’t. I have exhibited my trust in this Commission by bringing such critical evidence [of the bullet shells] before this Commission because I believe it would help the work of this Commission,” he told the Commission.

He continued: “I came there as a victim of an assault and I went to the police to give a statement [but] the police declined to take my statement at the time that I went there”.

Mr George explained that the cops indicated that they would get in touch subsequently but “they failed to do so, [and] up till now, I have not received a call from the Legon Police Station, it’s over a month”.
