NPP Supporters Attack Each Other -A/R
Several members of the New Patriotic Party from the Manhyia North constituency in the Ashanti region have reportedly sustained injuries following a clash between them and bodyguards of the party’s regional chairman Bernard Antwi Bosiako.
According to Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako Justice, the melee took place at Krofrom, where the party’s regional office is located.
The supporters reportedly marched to the regional headquarters after they had waited in vain for their constituency primary to be held as announced by the regional executives.
Bediako reported that the supporters clashed with the bodyguards of chairman Wontumi, as Antwi Bosiako is popularly known, when they got to the regional office.
Some of them sustained injuries before the police intervened to maintain law and order.
The parliamentary primary in the constituency was put on hold following the inability of the party’s leadership to resolve outstanding issues ahead of the nationwide primaries held last year.
