“The Abu Taliban guy, who is the fourth person on the list he’s always following Mahama…you see, the Hawks he established to counter Akufo-Addo is chasing him…he knows the boys…,” he alleged on Adom TV
Ken claimed that Abu Taliban is known to be a notorious member of the Hawks which has been unleashing terror on its political opponents.
He said further that the wanted person was the same person who attacked two NPP members during a limited registration exercise in Odododiodio in the Greater Accra Region sometime ago.
“The Abu Taliban guy was the one who beat Ursula Owusu and Abu Jiapor at Ododdodiodio sometime ago…when I commented on that, I was charged with treason,” he said further.
Abu Taliban is among four persons alleged to be members of pro-NDC vigilante group “The Hawks” who have been declared wanted by the Ashanti Regional Police Command in connection with the shooting incident that happened at the regional office of the NDC on Monday, 18 February 2019.
The incident claimed one life while one person is in critical condition at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
The other suspects, according to the police are Warrior, Damous and Mijima.
Regional police PRO, ASP Godwin Ahianyo told the media at a press briefing that the incident happened when gun-toting men on motorbikes alleged to be members of The Hawks evaded the NDC premises and fired several gunshots indiscriminately.
ASP Ahianyo said the police are pursuing the suspects for their arrest.
