The executives of the National Democratic Congress have turned in the party’s Suame Youth Organizer Razak Kuampa to the police command.
The police had earlier released statement for the arrest of the youth organizer who was captured in a viral video inciting youth of the party to employ violence in their quest to ensure the party’s victory in the 2024 elections.
The National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, in a statement on Monday called on the Police to pardon the party’s Suame Youth Organiser for allegedly inciting violence.
According to Mr. Gyamfi, the ‘young man misspoke and must be pardoned’.
Sammy Gyamfi explained that, the comments by the NDC activist were borne out of the “pain he and other NDC supporters have suffered in the hands of NPP thugs in the Ashanti Region over the years”.
As a result, while calling on the Police to pardon the utterances of the accused, he also implored the police to “focus on arresting NPP bandits and terrorists who have attacked a Court of competent jurisdiction in Kumasi and have actually maimed and killed several innocent Ghanaians”.
He also advised the party’s supporters “to continue to exercise restraint and not allow the fact that President Akufo Addo rode to power on the back of so much bloodshed and barbarity to make them want to mimic Nana Akufo Addo and his very violent political party”.
