Recent Killing In The Country Is Becoming A Culture” - Political analyst
Mr Osei has urged opinion leaders and stakeholders to make sure that no killer will be allowed to go scot free in Ghana.
A political Analyst and a lecturer at Kessben University collage in Kumasi, Mr Samuel Osei-Poku, has expressed displeasure on the recent increase in murder relating to rituals.
He is blaming the situation on the high unemployment rate in the country.
"A leading factor is that many youths are unemployed and are not willing to suffer before getting money but will always find an easier way to get money and at the end, demanding for human parts leading to every day killing", he bemoaned.
He stressed that the lack of poor background checks prior to marriages today has been a contributor to the high rate of uxoricide.
"Unlike the olden days, young people could easily get to meet and marry their partners via social media. The aftermaths are always disliking, disaffection, baseless suspicions, regrets, unresolved quarrels which finally causes murders", he stressed.
He added that some pastors in the name of religion today are performing the role of the family.
He further emphasized the pivotal role the family played in both premarital investigations and post-marital support, especially for young couples.
"There is the need for psychological or psychiatric counselling, stress management strategies as part of the solutions", he advised.
Mr Osei urged opinion leaders and stakeholders to make sure that no killer will be allowed to go scot-free and asked the government to put strong laws and measures against suspects to face them mercilessly.
He also advised the elders and prominent people who may come out to be defenders when one is allegedly accused of killing to also face the law as it is demanded and this will at least reduce murder cases in the country, he appealed.
