Dormaa West MP blames police for death of one in NPP, NDC clash
The Member of Parliament for Dormaa West Ali Alidu has blamed the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the Saturday violent clash between the party and some supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he alleged that the NDC has bussed some Ivoirians to come and register in the just ended mop-up exercise.
He indicated that the NPP had prevented this during the mass registration exercise but the NDC managed to bring these individuals top register during the mop-up exercise.
Violent clashes broke between some supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Saturday, which resulted in the death of one person.
Two people, according to the reports, who sustained gunshot wounds, were sent to the Dormaa Ahenkro Presbyterian Hospital for treatment.
The MP, who said the situation was unfortunate, accused the NDC of always fomenting trouble.
According to the reports, they were gunshots fired during the clash, which the MP stated killed one NPP member and injured another.
He further accused the police of not doing anything about the incident but rather fired gunshots, which killed the NPP member.
The MP said the commander for the area must be questioned as to why his men fired gunshots at his supporters.
