Mornah Accuses Akufo-Addo Gov't Of Supporting Abuses In Togo

People’s National Convention (PNC) chairman has accused the government of conniving with Togolese authorities to suppress voices protesting against human right abuses in that country.

Bernard Mornah’s accusations come in response to his arrest alongside 17 others for embarking on a “rally” Saturday against the Togolese government to draw attention to the human rights abuses being perpetrated by authorities.

Speaking to Joy News, Mr. Mornah said the police behaved in an unprofessional manner and that their actions suggest that the Ghana government supports the abuses in Togo.

“…What is happening suggests that that the government support the undemocratic happenings in Togo, they support the abuses and killings of our brothers and sisters,” he said.

He also described the “Rambo-style” of their arrest as “uncouth, unreasonable, and that it defies any reasonable thinking that the police in recent times can behave like that”.

Meanwhile, Mr. Mornah and security analyst Irbard Ibrahim who was also among those arrested have since been released on bail.

Mr. Mornah says the arrests were uncalled for.
