Takoradi, 
July 4, GNA – Hundreds of security personnel and some media
practitioners in the Western Region  on
Monday embarked on a walk dubbed  “a
walk against mob justice” to drum home the need to end instant justices in
the society. 

The Servicemen included the Police, Prisons,
Ghana National Fire Service, the Army, Metropolitan guards and the father of
the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama, who is an ex-service man.

The walk was under the auspices of Ahoto FM, a
member of the ATINKA Media VILLAGE in collaboration with Melody FM in the
Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.

The walk, well patronized, was to create awareness
on the phenomenon where some members of the society took the law into their
hands and dealt mercilessly with suspected criminals.

The General Manager of Ahoto FM, Mr Patrick
Bismarck Mensah, told the GNA that it was time society stemmed the tide on the
practice to avoid killing innocent souls.

“We need not to take the law into our own
hands and brutalize suspected criminals. That is why we have the police
stations and the securities around. Just report or hand over any suspect to the
police, “he added.

Captain Dennis Mahama Adam (Rtd), the father
of the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama was hopeful that by the massive awareness
on the topic, communities would be more careful in handling suspected
criminals.

Capt. Mahama Adam encouraged the public to go
beyond the talk shows and act to put an end to mob and instant justice in the
country.

He pledged his commitment to support such
exercises to sensitize and educate the public against mob justice.
