Mahama Should Release Ataa Ayi On ‘Compassionate’ Grounds And Seek For 1 Year Stay In The US!

Mahama Should Release Ataa Ayi On ‘Compassionate’ Grounds And Seek For 1 Year Stay In The US! Ataa Ayi Begs Mahama

Notorious armed robber, Aryee Aryeetey, aka Ataa Ayi has been compared to Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalid Muhammad Salih Al-Dhuby – the trio according to Charles Owusu are a threat to any state.

But should Ghana set free Ataa Ayi who is purportedly living a pious lifestyle in prison even though he is serving his 120 years for various armed robbery offences – will the USA house him if the Mahama-led government puts forward a request? 

This has been a mind-blowing question posed to the USA government after negotiating with the government of Ghana to accept a two-year stay of Guantanamo ex-detainees who have been described by the foreign media as threat to the US.

President Mahama in defence of the ex-detainees stay after a public outcry asked Ghanaians to show ‘compassion’ for these men who have spent 14 years in Gitmo – “In the Bible, it teaches us to be compassionate.”

Nonetheless, a leading member of the Progressive People’s Party [PPP],Charles Owusu has charged government to also release Ataa Ayi on ‘compassionate’ grounds and in reciprocal seek for just a year stay for him in the Unites State [US].

“Just after his release, President Mahama should negotiate with President Obama and send Ataa Ayi to them. The Americans are more Christian than us [Ghanaians] so I believe they will gladly accept our own terrorist Ataa Ayi,” he said in an interview with Peacefmonline.
