The Minister of Interior, Ambrose Dery will later today appear before Parliament to answer questions in relation to the slain Mfantseman Member of Parliament, Ekow Quansah Hayford.

The Interior Minister is also expected to brief the House on plans for the protection of MPs in their line of duties, a dire security problem that has been shelved for years.

The issue of providing armed police guards to MPs has yet again gained traction, following the gruesome killing of MP for Mfantseman, Ekow Quansah Hayford.

Former President John Dramani Mahama following the killing of the Mfantseman MP said this should reignite the matter of providing armed police guards to MPs.

“It’s probably also time to look at the provision of armed police guards for our MPs,” Mr. Mahama said.

Ekow Quansah Hayford was shot dead on Friday dawn by some unknown assailants on the Abeadze Dominase–Abeadze Duadzi–Mankessim road.

The lawmaker and some executives of the NPP were returning from a campaign trip when the incident occurred.

Already, the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye has led a parliamentary delegation to commiserate with the family of the late MP for Mfantseman.
