“I am not so fine about it, although it is in the social media, but I believe the whole world will know about every bit of this case, but the media is so quiet about it, I may not know why that silence but am not happy about it”
“The last time Gregory was sent to court was around last week but unfortunately it is not in the known to the public, the main stream media are not picking it up”, Mr. Atong stated.
He continue by stating that the family is not relaxed in anyway on seeking for justice for their family member, Gregory Afoko.
“Actually we are not relaxed but we are not given chance on radio as you has given us this morning”, Mr. Atong made it known.
It can be recalled that the Gregory family organized a press conference to press the police to petition the Inspector general of police (IGP) and the attorney general for them to take a criminal action against the four : Kamal Deen Abdulai, Daniel Bugri Naabu, Rockson Bugari and Otiko Afisa Djaba in connection with Adams Mahama’s death.
They made it known at the conference, that the petition will be followed until they get the true killers of the Late Chairman, Mahama.
