BORTIANOR HILL SHOOTING INCIDENT: Parliament To Probe Killing Of Five Suspected Land-Guards

Parliament has directed the Defence and Interior Committee and leadership of constitutional, legal, and Parliamentary Affairs committees to investigate the shooting incident which happened at Birtianor Hill last Friday.

The second deputy Speaker, Andrew Amoako Asiamah who was presiding at the time gave the committee up to the end of this month June 2023 to complete their work and submit its report to the House for appropriate decisions to be taken.

The directive came up on Tuesday 13 June 2023 when the member of Parliament for Bortianor-Ngleshie Amanfro, Hon. Sylvester Matthew Tetteh made a statement at the plenary, calling on Parliament to constitute a bipartisan committee to investigate the matter for an accurate report and better decisions be taken concerning the shooting incident

According to the Bortianor MP, the report from the police indicates that the five victims were into handguards activities in the area but the families and other people in the area are also saying, the five victims were not land guards but rather they’re into sand weaning activities. Some members of Parliament including Abuakwa South, Samuel Atta-Akyea, ranking member on the Defence and Interior committee and MP for Builsa North, James Agalga, and others also contributed to the statement by condemning the recent shoot-to-kill attitude of the Police instead of arresting the suspects to face the law.
