It has emerged that some 20 Yemeni Gunmen have employed deadly attacks on the family of a 14-year-old girl who was allegedly defiled by Omar Mohammed Mahmudu, a 60-year-old Yemeni in December 2017.
Lawyer Justice Abdulai, Crown Legal Bureau, Lawyer for the Zein Security and Anood Jibril Alsalami, pointed out in a press conference in Accra recently that the suspect and his gunmen are using death threats, character assassination and defamation to run down businessman and Good Samaritan, Hassan Zein, who is leading the fight to seek legal remedy for the family of the victim.
He pointed out that Hassan Zein (a Ghanaian-born-white) succeeded in the arrest of the suspect, Omar Mohammed Mahmudu, after the matter had been reported to the Madina Police in December last year.
The lawyer said: “The suspect was released shortly after he was arrested. He later disappeared from the scene after his attempt to get the National Chief Imam, Dr Sheik Nuhu Shaributu, to resolve the matter failed”.
Lawyer Abdulai stressed that the constant threats and daily shootings on the premises of his companies and character assassination on social media as a dubious businessman have compelled him to lay off over 2,000 workers and closed down almost 50 businesses in the country to save the lives of his workers.
He alleged that even though the nefarious activities of Omar Mohammed Mahmud and his cohorts have been reported to the police, not much appears to have been done, as the suspect succeeded in using the names of the President of Ghana, the Vice President, the Malian Ambassador as well as the Minister for the Interior to pave way for his unlawful activities.
The lawyer added that the suspect and his gunmen in a latest incident allegedly fired gunshots at the residence of the victim’s family on Sunday December 22, 2018, at around 1am (midnight).
As a result, he has called on the President, Inspector General of Police (IGP) and all the security agencies to act fast to save their lives and businesses from further collapse.
Petition To The IGP
“…We write as lawyer for and on behalf of the Alsalami and Yousef families (our clients) resident at West Legon, Accra, Ghana.
“Our clients inform us that sometime in December 2017, their 14-year-old daughter was defiled by one Omar Mohammed Mahmudu (who goes by several names and nationalities depending on the particular passport, out of the several passports he holds), a Yemeni national resident somewhere at Spintex/Tema Community 18.
Following the alleged defilement of their daughter, they sought help from several persons to ensure that the suspect is dealt with in accordance with the laws of Ghana, but sadly, all their efforts did not yield the appropriate results until they were directed at one Hassan Zein, a Ghanaian businessman resident in West Legon, Accra. Through the hard work and efforts of Hassan Zein, the suspect was arrested by the Madina Police.”
