The Inspector General of Police, David Asante-Apeatu is scheduled to appear before the Ayawaso Commission of Inquiry today, March 4, 2019.
The head of the Ghana Police Service will testify before the Commission probing the Ayawaso by-election violence.
Secretary to the commission Kofi Abotsi on Friday said the IGP David Asante Apeatu, officials from local election observers, CODEO and the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD) are expected to testify.
The Commission last week visited the violence scene at La Bawaleshie in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency to verify the accounts given to them by the witnesses of the by-election shooting. The commission has discovered 19 bullet marks at the scene.
According to Kofi Abotsi, the visit will also help the Commission to “synthesise the facts together with the oral evidence left before it by witnesses.”
Emphasising the relevance of the inspection, Mr Abotsi said the Commissioners “have seen things a thousand words cannot relay.” He added that the outcome of their work, which is the recommendations must support the fact on the ground.
