Two NDC loyalists killed in post-election clashes – Kofi Adams

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is alleging the murder of two of its loyalists after the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections.

The National Organizer of the party, Kofi Adams who made the claims said President Akufo-Addo must be held responsible.

According to him, the President, who is also the leader of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has failed to condemn members of his party who have been on rampage; forcibly taking over some state institutions and property.

Speaking on Eyewitness News on Friday, Kofi Adams said, the leadership of the NPP has been silent over their party members’ violent and unruly behavior that has resulted in the injury and death of some members of the NDC.

He said, “We [NDC] have buried two people as a result of post-election violence in Sefwi Wiawso and Dunkwa. They were NDC people who were attacked NPP members after the elections,” he said.

He expressed disappointment in the acting National Chairman of the NPP, Freddy Blay for justifying the attacks and describing it as activities to protect state property.

Kofi Adams said the NPP’s security group, known as the Invisible Forces beat up a police officer on duty at the Flagstaff House.

“You have these people move not just to toll booths and other places but even to the flagstaff house, beat up uniformed persons and tear up their clothes and then claim they [Invisible forces] are in charge.”

“I heard their acting National Chairman saying people are clearing goods without paying duty and so they have to go and protect those things. I am not aware of Customs officer who is not working to make the Invisible forces go and protect the place,” Kofi Adams said.

Some youth alleged to be sympathizers of the NPP have recently been on rampage; taking over some state properties and institutions including the Ghana Ports and Habours Authority and the Ashaiman assembly. Their activities have resulted in attacks on some members of the NDC.

‘NPP chairman arrested over toll booth seizure’

The Amasaman Divisional Police Command has arrested the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Constituency Chairman for Trobu, Kwame Ofosu Agyei, for attempting to take over activities at the Doblo toll booth.

According to a statement signed by the Regional Commander, ACP Timothy Yosa Bonga, the constituency chairman was arrested for forcibly entering the toll booth and threatening to take over revenue collection.

He is also accused of assaulting a police officer who was on duty at the time.
