Police To Question Hawa Koomson – The Central regional Police Command has welcomed the Minister for Special Initiatives, Mavis Hawa Koomson, after she fired a weapon at a registration centre at Kasoa on Tuesday.
Talking on Morning Starr, DSP Irene Oppong, PRO of the Central regional Police Command said the minister has been welcomed to assist with investigations.
“She is a member of Parliament and so there is a procedure to follow before you can invite her and so we are currently through that process to invite Hawa Koomson to help with investigation,” DSP Oppong told host
The MP has asserted she offered the warning shot to guard herself in the wake of feeling compromised while visiting registration centres in the constituency Monday.
“I’m a Member of Parliament, I need to protect myself. It was at dawn; my police escort had not started work yet. So, that is the modus operandi I engaged in his absence,” she told Accra-based Adom FM.
Security analyst Adam Bonaa has encouraged President Akufo-Addo to sack Mavis Hawa Koomson as Minister of Special Development Initiatives after she conceded shooting a gunfire at a registration centre in Kasoa.
“For me, she saying her life was in danger was an afterthought and she’s a disgrace to womanhood. If by the 12 noon today, and she has not resigned, the president should fire her.
“Why did she go to a registration centre with a firearm and not in the company of her personal protection? Also If she knew her life was going to be in danger, why didn’t she call on the police for protection? She [Hawa Koomson] should have known that wielding a gun doesn’t give you the right to discharge it.”
