A statement signed by the Regional Secretary, Theophilus Tetteh Chaie stated that the matter has been referred to the Constituency Disciplinary Committee for further action to be taken.

He called on the MP to render an unqualified apology to the chief, youth and people of Mobole for the alleged action.
But Mr George vehemently denied the allegations levelled against him.
In a statement, he said that at no point in time was any weapon discharged during his visit to the Mobole electoral area.
Meanwhile, Hon. Sam George has sued Mr. Okoe Mensah at the Accra High Court for defamation.
