Akrofi�s Death Was Politically Motivated � CPP

The United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland branch of the Convention People�s Party (CPP) is alleging that the murder of one of its key members, Hayford Akrofi was politically motivated. Akrofi, who was the vice chairman of the party�s UK and Ireland branch was shot in his home at Amasaman in Accra last week by armed robbers. Until his death Mr. Akrofi was also Secretary to the Consultative & Coordinating Committee at the CPP headquarters in Accra. Speaking to Citi News, the CPP�s Director of Communications in the UK and Ireland, Nana Yaw Buobu said there is a sinister motive behind Akrofi�s death. He claimed that the manner in which Mr. Akrofi died �doesn�t seem right because the Thursday before he died, he was on TV talking about GMOs [Genetically Modified Organisms] and before then, he�s been on the GMO issue all the time.� Mr. Buobu also stated that the late Akrofi was a strong advocate for good governance and since his arrival in Ghana; he was on several platforms �talking about how things are not working in the country.� �So we don�t really accept that the fact that armed robbers will just go into somebody�s house, kill him and not take anything. We won�t accept that fact,� he stressed. Meanwhile, the leadership of the party is bemoaning the low level of security for citizens in the country and are therefore demanding tighter security checks ought to be put in place in neighborhoods to ensure optimal safety for Ghanaians.
