PEACE FM Parliamentary correspondent Emmanuel Akorley reported that the MPs were shattered after hearing the news and as a result a motion was moved by the Minority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensa Bonsu for the suspension of sitting in honour of their colleague MP.

“we must bond together and go and visit the family and the crime scene. The house is not in the right mood to do business” the speaker of Parliament said in response to the motion.
