A security analyst, Adam Bonaa has described Hawa Koomson’s firearm as murder or kidnapping.
Speaking in an interview Daily News Ghana monitored, Adam Bonaa said the failure of the police to act timeously in connection with the incident could lead to the loss of important evidence.
“The police should have acted early. When it comes to issues about firearms or ballistics, it is just like murder or kidnapping, the longer you wait before you start the proper interrogations and investigations and gathering of evidence, the more you miss crucial evidence that you could have picked up earlier,” he said.
The Central Regional Police Command on Friday interrogated the Special Development Initiatives Minister and MP for Awutu Senya East over her firing of warning shots at the Step to Christ registration center on Monday, July 20, 2020.
Her firearm was also retrieved by the police.
The development comes after public criticisms over her actions with many accusing the police of bias and urging the minister to resign.
The minister in media interviews claimed her action was in self-defense amidst confusion at the center.
But speaking on Eyewitness News on Citi TV, Adam Bonaa said the minister’s excuse is untenable and calls for her resignation are not out of place.
Responding to suggestions that by virtue of her position as a minister of state and legislator, she cannot be immediately arrested, Adam Bonaa said the law that grants legislators some immunity from arrest only relates to when they are on their way to or from Parliament hence does not apply to her.
