NDC supporters vandalize party vehicle
Some aggrieved supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Mpraeso Constituency have vandalised the party’s pick-up vehicle with registration number GV 2507-12.
They destroyed the vehicle’s wind screen, driving mirror, removed the car tape and deflated the tyres and also forced the constituency office open and destroyed the office furniture, a computer and other valuable items.
The aggrieved party supporters’ action was against the re-nomination of Mr Joseph Omari, as the District Chief Executive for Kwahu South.
Briefing the Ghana News Agency, Mr Emmanuel Atta-Obeng, the Constituency Chairman, said Mr Victor Benefo, the Bepong Ward Chairman of the party, was the driver of the vehicle for the past year without pay.
He said at about 1600 hours on Monday, Mr Benefo parked the vehicle in front of the Chairman’s shop near the Mpraeso Post Office for a discussion with him.
Mr Atta-Obeng said not quite long the supporters numbering about 10 confronted the driver and demanded the keys of the vehicle.
Mr Benefo told them that he had handed over the keys to the chairman.
Mr Atta-Obeng said the supporters went ahead to vandalise the vehicle with cutlass, hammers and other offensive weapons.
He said the incident was reported to the Mpraeso police but no arrest had been made.
