Chairman of the Parliamentary Defence Committee, Fritz Baffour says he is unhappy with the hasty trial of President John Dramni Mahama’s "gunman".

According to him, the alleged assassin, Charles Antwi's sentence – “was too fast” after calling for proper investigations into his attempt killing.

An Accra circuit slapped a 10-year jail term on the man who was arrested for possession of firearms without lawful excuse at the church of President John Mahama last Sunday.

The court passed the judgment after Charles Antwi had told the judge he carried the gun with the intent to kill President John Dramani Mahama.

He further told the court presided over by Justice Francis Obiri that he did not agree with the current electoral system being practiced in the country, something he says is not good for democracy.

The suspect also revealed to the court that the day he was arrested was his fourth time of going to the church, but failed to carry out his mission because the president absented himself from church.

His quick sentence has raised many issues – his mother has also described Charles Antwi as – “a mentally disabled person”.

However speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show, "Ghana Montie", Fritz Baffour, who is also the NDC Member of Parliament for Ablekuma South Constituency, maintained that Charles Antwi’s sentence was “unfortunate”.

I am appalled by the way his case was handled. I am absolutely against that. We should have taken our time to investigate the case thoroughly,” he told host Kwesi Aboagye.

Adding that; “His [Charles Antwi] quick trial is questionable”.
