NPP gives details of attack on its Dzorwulu office by alleged NDC thugs



The Ghana Police Service on Monday, July 8, 2024, announced the arrest of a female suspect, Judith Trisy, in connection with the attack on the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency office of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

The NPP has now provided details of the events that led to the arrest of the woman.

In a statement sighted by GhanaWeb, the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency Secretary of the NPP, Alhaji Issah Sawadogo, alleged that members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) attacked their campaign office in Dzorwulu while they were holding a meeting.

He stated that the incident, which began around 4:30 PM on Sunday, July 7, 2024, resulted in the NPP constituency organizer, Agyenim Boateng, who was supervising the meeting, sustaining severe injuries.

“At about 4:30 PM on Sunday, July 7, 2024, the NPP Constituency Organizer, Mr. Agyenim Boateng, was supervising a meeting on behalf of the Member of Parliament, Hon. Lydia Seyram Alhassan, with some sections of Party Volunteers and Constituency Executives. To our utmost surprise, a group of people led by the NDC Constituency Women’s Organizer of Ayawaso West Wuogon, Madam Victoria Naematu Nadolie Abdulai, and the NDC Constituency Youth Organizer, Theophilus Kodzo Bedzrah, broke into our premises and forcefully entered the main hall where the meeting was being held. They started filming the meeting and subsequently pounced on the attendees fiercely.

“The unfortunate incident led to a grave assault on our Constituency Organizer, Mr. Yaw Agyenim Boateng, who sustained severe injuries and bruises all over his body, and mass destruction of property within the premises, including some plastic chairs. Amid the unforeseen circumstances, Madam Victoria, the NDC Women’s Organizer, called some thugs from the NDC Greater Accra Regional office led by Mr. Ottu, the NDC Constituency Chairman of Ayawaso Central, who was accompanied by some 20 macho men. These men came in to cause further destruction of property, leading to damage to our two cars,” part of the statement reads.

It added, “We are shocked by this repulsive action orchestrated by the NDC Women’s Organizer, as it is an affront to our democracy.”

The party also called on the police to investigate the matter thoroughly and bring the perpetrators to book.
