Member of Parliament for Asawase Constituency, Muntaka Mubarak has called on the government to publish the full report on the Manso-Nkwanta killings.
According to him, the publication of the report will put to rest claims and accusations by the police that the deceased persons were armed robbers.
The MP has also called for the prosecution of the 21 police personnel found to be principal suspects in the killing of some seven men at Manso-Nkwanta in the Ashanti region.
A livid Hon. Muntaka Mubarak said subjecting the suspects to a formal police criminal investigation will not yield any results.
Hon Muntaka’s comment follows the findings of the committee set up to investigate the matter which found no evidence to establish that the seven persons were armed robbers.
A statement issued by the Information Ministry said: “There were no facts before the committee to establish that the deceased persons were armed robbers who engaged in exchange of fire with the Police”.
The statement also said aside the families of the victims being compensated; it also charged the police to interdict the 21 police personnel involved in the incident.
But Hon. Muntaka on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem, Tuesday maintained that the police dealing with its own personnel amount to a conflict of interest.
“If you leave it to the police administration, I bet you, it will not get anywhere and won’t serve the interest of anybody,” he stated.

The Asawase MP bemoaned the incessant killing of civilians by some unprofessional police personnel.
The police service is a very useful tool but there are bad nuts within so we must use this opportunity to rid the police of them. They must be prosecuted to serve as a deterrent to others,” he noted.
