Former Communications Advisor to President John Dramani Mahama, has recounted a near death experience were he had a gun pulled on by a man who claimed to be with the Counter-Terrorism Unit at the Atomic Junction roundabout.
Recounting his encounter in a Facebook post today, Mr. Malor noted on his way to pick copies of a biography on the late Komla Dumor, he encountered the ‘drunk officer’ on the Legon road yesterday, Sunday, February 23, 2020. The officer pulled him over for allegedly talking on phone while driving; a claim Mr. Malor denies.
In a video attached to the post, Mr. Malor said “the police officer who appeared on my right hand side started screaming and puffing at me for using the phone and aggressively yanked my door open, but looking at how he was behaving, I tried parking so as to reason with him but, he claimed I was planning to abscond and so pulled out a gun from his holster and aimed it at me and was ready to shoot. I was totally threatened,”.
Mr Dotsei Malor said though he had forgiven the officer who who pulled the gun on me, but he will take up the matter so others are spared such an incidence.
“As a practising Christian I must forgive the man who pulled the gun on me, as he apologised. I must give thanks to GOD for life, BUT it would irresponsible, uncaring, and reckless of me not to take steps to ensure others are spared the horror, the shock, and the terror”, he said.

GHANA – NO ONE SHOULD HAVE A GUN PULLED ON HIM OR HER – FOR ANY FRIVOLOUS, CONCOCTED, AND COOKED REASON: For the sake of others who could be shot and killed or bullied, intimidated, and harassed to scorn and ridicule, WE ARE TAKING THIS MATTER UP. Please, this is now NOT ABOUT ME, but about preventing what I went through from happening to any brother or sister – not even to an “enemy” or to anyone who considers me their “enemy.”
As a practising Christian I must forgive the man who pulled the gun on me, as he apologised. I must give thanks to GOD for life, BUT it would irresponsible, uncaring, and reckless of me not to take steps to ensure others are spared the horror, the shock, and the terror of what still seems to me to have been a bad bad dream.
I OWE IT TO EVERY ORDINARY GHANAIAN TO TAKE IT UP, AND WE’RE TAKING THIS UP, as a CONSCIENTIOUS CITIZEN OF FAITH, who has malice towards none and only goodwill to all. It feels terrible, horrible, and abominable but LET GOD BE GLORIFIED AND LET GOOD EMERGE FROM EVIL.
I wish to thank every one who has called to check, sent me messages in my inbox, plus texts and WhatsApp, or given advice and encouragement and for all the kind words of support. I am thankful.
[MORE UPDATES WILL BE COMING UP SHORTLY.]
