Private Legal Practitioner Ace Ankomah has called for special investigations into the “Double’s” confession that he took a gun from a Police man to use during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
A National Security Operative; Bright Ernest Akomea who is also known as “Double” appeared before the Emile Short Commission which has been tasked to investigate happenings at the recent by election held at Ayawaso West Wuogon. In his testimony, he said although he was not assigned a gun for the said operation at Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, he took that of the driver when they arrived at the scene, but never pulled a trigger.
Ace Ankomah believes the Police service should conduct its own investigation beside the Emile Short Commission’s work.
Lawyer Ankomah who was a guest on weekend news analysis programme; Newsfile on Joy News insists “some people need to pay for some of the happenings at Ayawaso West Wuogon”. “Some of the people should not go home free” he said.
He also added his voice to that of other guests who suspected that some of the witnesses who appeared before the commission were peddling untruths and hoped that they would be tried for perjury.
He says the Short Commission’s work should be used as an opportunity to “clean the stables once and for all”.
