A member of the SWAT team Mohammed Sulemana who attacked the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Sam George during the Ayawaso by-election has apologized for his deed.
An enraged Sulemana got off the bucket of a SWAT pickup vehicle during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election on January 31 which was characterized by violence and landed two hefty slaps on Hon. Sam George when the two were engaged in hot exchanges.
Appearing before the three-member Emile Short Commission of Inquiry into the Ayawaso chaos on Friday, Sulemana said the MP first insulted him during the altercations at Bawaleshie before he silenced him with a slap.
But he was quick to add that he regrets his actions and asked for forgiveness.
“I’m guilty and regret what I did. I won’t do that again. I know once it’s from my heart he’ll forgive me.”
Sulemana added: “I didn’t know some George. I didn’t know he was an MP. If I knew I wouldn’t have slapped him.”
The Commission, which was given a one-month duration by President Akufo Addo to investigate circumstances leading to the violence during the by-election on 31st January, ends its work today, March 8, 2019.
