#JusticeForAlbertDonkor: Treat The ‘Killing’ of Albert Donkor In Nkoronza Like That of George Floyd – MP Tells Ghanaians

NDC Member of Parliament(MP) for Nkoranza South, Emmanuel Kwadwo Agyekum, has urged Ghanaians to speak against police brutality in recent times.
The lawmaker says he stands with his constituency youth for demanding justice for their colleague, 28-year-old trader, Albert Akwasi Donkor who he said was “shot and killed” by the police in just “three hours of his arrest.”
Some irate youth in Nkoranza in the Bono East region have attacked the Police station in the area freeing at least three suspects in custody.
The youth protesting the death of Albert Akwasi Donkor who a statement from the police says ‘was shot during an operation'.
The deceased, a footballer and digital television installer is said to have been picked up from his Nkoranza South home by armed officers at 2am on April 24, 2022, in an unregistered vehicle of an anti-armed robbery operation.
Speaking on the issues in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show, 'Ghana Montie', Mr Emmanuel Kwadwo Agyekum maintained that the police acted “unprofessionally”.
According to him, the circumstance leading to the death of Albert Akwasi Donkor is questionable.
He, however, called on Ghanaians to help seek justice for the slain “innocent young man” like how the African-Americans did for George Perry Floyd.

The latter was murdered by a police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during an arrest after a store clerk suspected Floyd may have used a counterfeit twenty-dollar bill.
“Albert is not here to speak, we [Ghanaians] have to speak for him, he is no more,” he urged.
He also called for an independent body to investigate the killing of Albert Akwasi Donkor.
“We don’t need the police club to investigate,” he said.
