Mobila's death causes fear in Tamale  -Wayo Seini

Police and military investigations are yet to disclose the details of separate commissioned enquiries into the death of the CPP's Northern Regional chairman Alhaji Issah Mobilla.

The CPP regional chairman died in military custody shortly after December elections.

He death prompted concerns over the propriety of his detention by the military over allegations of his involvement in gun running.

Concerns have also been expressed about the use of excessive force, which analyst suggest is characteristic of the military's involvement in civil relations.

Mr Wayo Seini is the newly elected for Tamale Central.

He said the people of the area feel insecure because even after the death of Alhaji Mobillah, the military continue to brutalise civilians.

“ We will like to suggest that the Military to replicate the professional work they do when they go on peacekeeping home instead of trying to make some people look like enemies by harassing and beating them” he said.

He said after the death of Issah Mobilla some military men in armored cars were holding stick on the streets of Tamale and any time they come into contact with someone on a bicycle or motorbike, they use the sticks to beat them up for no apparent reason.

Mr. Seini said as a means of curbing such acts the party held press conferences and issued various statements on the acts of the military in Tamale saying, “ We are particularly waiting to find out about Mobilla case, which is a pure case of murder and since it is being handled by the military investigation apparatus, we are waiting for the outcome and we hope that the authorities will do the right thing by bring the culprits to justice”

He expressed the hope that government will set an example and the military itself will clean its house by bringing one of their own to justice so as to give the Ghanaian Military a better name.

“Mobilla's case was pure murder and violation of human rights which is not allowed even under the country's law, the UN and other major international institutions and organizations and therefore the law must take its course no matter what, stressing, even the president can be subjected to the laws of the country of he goes wrong
