In a post shared on his official Facebook page on Monday, 16th May 2022, he wrote;
"Ghana’s human rights credentials would continue to deteriorate if citizens in police custody are increasingly killed with such despicable impunity.
All true patriots must stand with the people of Nkoranza to demand justice for Albert Donkor.
The Ghana Police Service needs a purge."
