Speaking on Neat FM this morning, Mr. Akamba revealed that he usually carries gun on him but without any bad intention. He added that even though he had gun on him, he didn't have any intention of using it during the demonstration. He added that he usually carries gun on him because of his safety. He added that he didn't feel safe at the demonstration grounds so he had to have a gun on him at the demonstration grounds.
He continued and revealed that he was even attacked by a National security operative who came to him with an electric shocker. Joshua Akamba added that even at that moment, he didn't even think of taking his gun.
"I have never pulled my gun on anyone before. I am a very disciplined person. But I felt threatened that is why I didn't leave the gun in my house" he said.
He added that the Ghana police told him get rid of the gun because someone else may cause shooting violence at the demonstration and the blame may be put on him because he also had a weapon.
This comes after the National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress, Joshua Akamba, was spotted by the Ghana police holding a gun at the El Wak Stadium, where protestors had gathered. The police issued a statement on their social media handle and urged him to do the needful.
"He was duly advised by the Police to put the weapon away after his attention was drawn to the illegality associated with such an act. He was also urged to notify other demonstrators to desist from carrying offensive weapons during the demonstration," the statement from police.
