Suame NDC youth organiser meant what he said, he is not perturbed but…- Defence Counsel

Mr Evans Amankwah, Counsel for the Suame National Democratic Congress (NDC) youth organizer, Razak Avoliya who has been arrested for allegedly inciting violence ahead of the 2024 general elections, has said the ERazak meant whatever he said which has resulted in his arrest.

The Police arrested suspect Razak Avoliya following an investigation into a viral video in which he allegedly incited political violence ahead of the next  general elections.

The suspect is in Police custody and is expected to be put before court today Thursday, February 9 to face justice.

Razak reported himself to the Central Police Command in Kumasi in the company of his lawyer, some regional party executives, and sympathizers.

His lawyer told journalists on Wednesday, February 8 that “They charged him with offensive conduct and we were to go to court but unfortunately, after the statement, we realized that time has far been spent so we agreed to go to court [Thursday].

“We will cooperate with the law, we are not perturbed about the detention of our brother here, he will be in the cell till [Thursday]. He is not worried, he meant what he said, he is not in any way perturbed about it but he has no intention of destabilizing the peace of this nation, that is not his intention.

“He was encouraging the people of Suame constituency to fortify themselves in the 2024 elections because anything can happen, for that matter, they should be prepared to defend themselves, that is exactly what he said. So anything apart from that is a misinterpretation of his words in the video.”
