The Central North Police Command successfully prevented a potentially dangerous situation when they intervened in an altercation involving former Member of Parliament for Suhum Constituency in the Central Region, Frederick Opare Ansah.
Mr. Opare-Ansah arrived at the Pentecost Worship Centre in Assin Fosu, where one of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential aspirants, Mr. Kennedy Agyapong, was casting his vote. Tensions quickly escalated, leading to a confrontation between Mr. Agyapong’s supporters and the police.
During the altercation, four gunshots were fired, causing further chaos, and Mr. Opare-Ansah’s team managed to escape the scene amid jeers from the crowd.
Mr. Opare-Ansah had challenged Mr. Agyapong to meet him at the Pentecost Worship polling center, and he fulfilled his promise by arriving shortly before the close of the exercise. However, he encountered resistance from delegates gathered at the entrance, preventing his entry.
