Police in the Ashanti region are yet to investigate claims of death threats on Samira Hussein, sister of a suspect linked to a shooting incident at the National Democratic Congress’s Kumasi office.
The threats are believed to have come from persons believed to be part of the irate youth who launched the attack on her brother.
Sulemana Hussein aka Akon was declared wanted by police for his alleged involvement in the shooting incident which claimed the life of 34-year-old Abdul Wasiu Idris.
Some armed thugs on Thursday besieged the suspect’s Kenyasi-Abirem residence where they allegedly attacked him, stabbing him in the process.
Samira who witnessed the attacks believes persons who were involved in the attack on her brother could have initiated the threats.
While calling on the police for protection, she, however, says her life is in danger.
“After the incident, I have been receiving calls from unknown numbers and private numbers. The moment I hear the voice, I just cut the call. I listened to one guy and he said they made a mistake and that they should have attacked me first before my brother. They should have not allowed me to move. I have been seeing strange faces around our house. People are surveying our house,” she complained.
Meanwhile, tension has heightened at Asawasi, Alabar and its environs following rumours of multiple reprisal attacks by colleagues of Sulemana Hussein.
