Collins Dauda Begs Chiefs To Save Wanted Brother
Member of Parliament (MP) for the Asutufi South Constituency, COLLINS Dauda, has pleaded with the chiefs in his area to intervene on behalf of Abdulai Naaba, his younger brother, who is on the police wanted list for his alleged involvement in some gang-related attacks ahead of the 2016 general elections.
According to him, he knew that chiefs in his constituency wielded a lot of respect and power, and could play some vital roles in securing the much-needed freedom of his beleaguered brother.
“I have been appealing passionately to the chiefs in my area to intervene so that my brother, who has been declared wanted, would regain his freedom.
“I want the chiefs to settle the case against my brother out of court. My family will compensate all the injured persons as well”, he said.
Hon. Dauda, who was Local Government Minister during the National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration, made the disclosure recently on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM.
Naaba Declared Wanted
It would be recalled that Naaba was declared wanted by the police for allegedly causing severe injuries to some New Patriotic Party (NPP) members during the run-up to the last elections.
He reportedly fled the constituency after the police started to hunt for him to face the law.
The lawmaker said he was extremely worried about the atrocities his brother had been accused of committing; saying “I condemn what happened”.
The NDC big-wig continued: “I am also worried because I don’t hear from my younger brother. My mother is still alive and she is also worried.
“I wish the matter will be settled out of court so that there will be peace and unity in the constituency once again”.
He reiterated his family’s preparedness to compensate all those that got injured following the political clashes at the time.
