Communication team member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Patrick Koranteng Sarpong has petitioned the Minister for National Security, Hon. Bryan Acheampong, to immediately arrest popular journalist, Mugabe Salifu, professionally known as Mugabe Maase for causing fear and panic.
It would be recalled that on Friday, Mugabe Maase openly said it on his show "Insight Politics" on Radio XYZ that the NPP will kill Manasseh Azure Awuni, Joy News' investigative journalist for exposing the government on 'militia group' called the De-Eye Group who have been using the Osu Castle as their training grounds.
He alleged the NPP will kill Manasseh Azure for exposing them within eleven months if the security agencies do not protect him.
"If the security agencies do not protect him they will finish him, they will get rid of him, I speak without fear or favour, this is a gift God has given to me".
He added, "The fake ones (prophets) can come out and say whatever they like but I'm speaking in the spiritual realm. Manasseh Awuni, I am speaking to your parents and I'm not speaking as Mugabe but the Holy Spirit is using me".
"I'm repeating, if the security agencies do not protect him, the NPP will kill him as they did it to Ahmed Hussein Suale. The truth is one and as for me they can't touch me and if you try me you will die first", he said confidently.
He repeated, "I'm saying it again if the security of this country does not protect Manasseh they will take his life at Joy FM".
Joy News reported that a militia group associated with the NPP is being trained at the Christiansburg Castle otherwise known as Osu Castle in Accra.
Manasseh Azure Awuni, in his exposé, revealed that the group named 'De-Eye Group' had been meeting at the facility for close to two years.
President Akufo-Addo is believed to be in the know of the operations by the De-Eye Group at the state facility which is highly classified as a security zone.
Manasseh’s exposé has, however, raised many questions on President Akufo-Addo's recent call for both NPP and NDC to dialogue on disbanding the party militia during his State of the Nation Address.
But in a statement issued by the NPP's Communicator and sighted by Daniel Kaku, he said Mugabe Maase must be arrested immediately to provide evidence of what he said on his show.
"Mugabe Maase must be arrested with immediate effect to provide further details of what he has alleged. We live in a country with laws. We do not live in a jungle where lawlessness reigns supreme", the statement demanded.
The statement opined that if Mugabe Maase is not arrested by the security, they (NPP) would be disappointed.
"If this convict, Mugabe Maase is not arrested to assist in unravelling the mystery behind this evil plan, we may live to regret it", the statement said.
The statement alleged, "We are still grappling with finding the kidnapped three Takoradi girls which, by every instrument of measurement, is linked to the NDC, we cannot sit aloof for these people to commit crimes against Ghanaians just so they could win political power".
The statement concluded, "We wait expectantly for the swift arrest of this criminally-minded NDC journalist, Mugabe Maase".
