‘I keep receiving death threats from callers’ – Sister of stabbed NDC supporter

A sister to the suspect in the Kumasi National Democratic Congress (NDC) office shootings says she has been receiving threats from persons believed to be part of the irate youth who launched the attack on her brother.

Samira Hussein, who witnessed the stabbing of her brother last week by persons suspected to be relatives of the deceased NDC supporter, told Citi News some unknown persons keep calling her phone and threatening her with death.

Her brother, Suleman Hussein, also known as Akon, was declared wanted by police for his alleged involvement in the shooting incident which claimed the life of 34-year old Abdul Wasiu.

Angry youth on Thursday besieged the residence of the suspect at Kenyasi-Abirem where they allegedly assaulted him.

Samira Hussein says she is living in fear and wants police protection.

“After the incident, I have been receiving calls from unknown numbers and private numbers. The moment I hear the voice, I just cut the call. I listened to one guy and he said they made a mistake and that they should have attacked me first before my brother. They should have not allowed me to move. I have been seeing strange faces around our house. People are surveying our house,” she complained.
