Gregory Afoko is alive but we’ll hold authorities responsible if anything goes wrong – Family

It is not true that Gregory Afoko who is standing trial for the murder of late Upper East Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alhaji Adams Mahama is dead, the Sandema family has announced.

News making the rounds suggested that Gregory Afoko, who was accused of murdering Adams Mahama in 2015 and currently in BNI custody for same, has died.

But in a statement, family of the accused debunked the death rumours adding that, “Greg is in some form of good health & has in the past week even tested negative for Covid-19”.

“This malevolent false news is without credibility. The hidden hands behind it are doing so to achieve a certain evil outcome,” the Royal Ayieta family of Sandema stated.

The suspect’s family is however, unhappy with how their son has being held in BNI custody for more than a year and threatens to “hold the authorities individually and collectively responsible if anything untoward happens to Greg”.

“He has been held unlawfully in BNI custody in solitary confinement for over a year. Unlawfully because he had been remanded into prison custody by a court but was removed by force from the Nsawam prison to BNI custody where access to him has been excessively restricted,” the Royal Ayieta family of Sandema explained.

PRESS RELEASE

GREGORY AFOKO IS ALIVE AND HEALTHY

The Royal Ayieta family of Sandema, wishes to inform all, that the news trending about Gregory Afoko’s demise is false. Greg is in some form of good health & has in the past week even tested negative for Covid-19.

This malevolent false news is without credibility. The hidden hands behind it are doing so to achieve a certain evil outcome.

The family will hold the authorities individually and collectively responsible if anything untoward happens to Greg.

He has been held unlawfully in BNI custody in solitary confinement for over a year. Unlawfully because he had been remanded into prison custody by a court but was removed by force from the Nsawam prison to BNI custody where access to him has been excessively restricted.

These developments make us suspect that someone is hatching a sinister plan to harm our son. We are forced to call on the Builsa community and all those who GENUINELY believe in human rights to collectively save a soul who has been facing gross injustice at the hands of the state and its actors.

Thank you.

Robert Atong Asekabta, Spokesperson, Ayieta Family, Sandema
