I know nothing about party office shooting – Joseph Yamin

A former Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister has expressed shock at being linked to the deadly shooting at his party’s office at Kumasi in the Ashanti region.

Joseph Yamin and the former Municipal Chief Executive Officer of Ejisu-Juaben, Afrifa Yamoah-Ponkoh have been questioned by the police for their possible involvement in the shooting incident on Monday.

The incident led to the death of one, leaving another with life-threatening injuries.

In an interview with journalists after his meeting with the police, Mr Yamin said he has no hand in the shooting, was nowhere near the party office and, therefore, finds it astonishing that someone told police he knew about the incident.

“My surprise is why my name was brought into this matter. I have nothing to do with it, I wasn’t near the venue, and I knew nothing about those who came here,” he said.

Mr Yamoah-Ponkoh is also being investigated by the police

The former Deputy Sports Minister during the Mahama-led administration, however, said he will find the people who reported mentioned his name and ask them why.

He added that the will cooperate fully with the police in investigating the matter.

The Ashanti Regional Police has launched a search for four people who are alleged to have shot two people killing one of them at the office of the National Democratic Congress in Kumasi.

In a press release, the police indicated the four suspects alleged to be part of an NDC vigilante group, Hawks, were behind the attack.

The police have mounted a search for Husein Barnabas, also known as Warrior, Mijima, Damos, and Abu Taliban.

The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said, the party will cooperate with the police to identify the perpetrators of Monday’s shooting incident at their Kumasi office.

Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the police are free to deal with the assailants if identified in accordance with law and the party will not impede in that process.

“We have indicated that crime has no party colours. We don’t know who perpetrated this but because of the presence of the eyewitness, I am sure it will not be difficult for the police to get people to identify the perpetrators.

“Whoever did this should be picked up and dealt with according to law,” he added.
