Former National Security Coordinator and member of the National Democratic Congress Lieutenant Colonel Larry Gbevlo has decried the silence of influential Ghanaians over the wrongs going on in the country.
The former Special Representative in charge of Counter Terrorism Cooperation and Director of African Centre for the Study and Research on Terrorism (ACSRT) in Algeria was reacting to the death of a young teacher trainee who was killed in Banda in the heat of the ongoing voter registration.
Silas Wulo Chame who was a newly trained teacher of the Methodist College of Education at Akim Oda was stabbed to death in cold blood by thugs believed to be members of the New Patriotic Party.
Lt. Col. Gbevlo Lartey took to Twitter to chide the pastors and other influential who have been silent over the death of the young man.
“Ghana Stuff: Interesting how well known otherwise very vociferous elderly, influential citizens suddenly hear and see no wrong in society and no longer say anything. Not even when a young man gets murdered in Banda for virtually nothing but that he belongs to the other side,” he tweeted.
The Youth Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress George Opare Addo has given the police a 72-hour ultimatum to arrest the killers of Silas. He warned that if the killers are not brought to book, the NDC youth will find, arrest and hand over the perpetrators to the police.
