The Rastafari Council, Ghana (RCG) strongly condemns the recent assassination attempt on the life of radio personality and musician, Ahmed Abubakar aka Blakk Rasta.
The attempt which occurred at the premises of Zylofon on January 5, 2021, ended in the arrest of the perpetrator.
The Council will like to urge the Ghana Police Service to vigorously investigate this matter so that the perpetrator may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The seriousness of this offense demands a swift execution of justice which, in turn, will serve as a strong deterrent to other would-be criminals.
Since the media is the fourth estate of the realm, the Police should ensure that such attacks on media personalities and organizations are dealt with accordingly.
It is imperative that the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), National Media Commission (NMC), civil society and all well-meaning Ghanaians condemn this criminal act.
Finally, the RCG would like to empathise with Blakk Rasta in this traumatic time and assure him of both our spiritual and material support.
