The Concerned Youth of Asawase have expressed disappointment with the police for the recent killings of some of their colleagues in the Zongos.

According to the youth, their recent meekness is as a result of the caution they have been given to be law abiding citizens.

Their comments come on the back of demise of a brother, Yussif Salawudeen, who was allegedly assaulted to death by the police.

In a statement issued by the group Wednesday, July 26, 2023, and signed by its president, Harris Umar, they described the action of the police as barbaric.

The concerned youth are calling on the Inspector General of Police and the government to ensure those police officers who brutalised their brother to death are brought to book.

“The Concerned Youth of Asawase are by this notice informing the IGP and the government that; no amount of money is enough to replace a life; this shouldn’t be a norm, our innocent brother, Yussif Salawudeen, popularly known among his peers as Shilah was a harmless, decent and hardworking young man with a proven good character known by all in the community;  he is completely innocent of the purported suspicion by that team of unprofessional policemen who assaulted and brutalised him to death.

“The autopsy report from the hospital has confirmed our brother Yussif Salawudeen was beaten to death. So, this time the Police can’t lie. However, we condemn the act of vandalism at the Police station by a section of the aggrieved youth due to the pain of losing a brother. Two wrongs have never made a right, we seek justice not by breaking the law and disturbing public peace but, rather seek Justice in the most civic and lawful means.

“We are calling on the government to as a matter of urgency step in to ensure that justice is served our brother, and the Policemen who killed our brother are brought to book to face the full rigors of law.  We the Concerned Youth of Asawase will not rest until justice is served.  Enough is enough!  Enough of the Kill and Pay by the Police and Government; Allow the Zongo Youth to Grow”
