Police ward off attack on Akufo-Addo’s residence; call for reinforcement


story-8The Nima police have fended off attacks on the residence of NPP Presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, by persons alleged to be supporters of the NDC.

Supporters of the governing National Democratic Congress undertaking a walk, allegedly veered off to Mr. Akufo-Addo’s Nima residence and tried to enter the house but met resistance from security men.

They then pelted stones and broken bottles into the house causing some damage.

Police officers from the Nima police station which is a block away from the residence of the opposition politician intervened to ward off the attack.

Joy News’ Beatrice Adu who reported from the residence says the police have called for reinforcement.

Supporters of the New Patriotic Party have started gathering at the Nima residence of the flagbearer of their party.

Beatrice reported that some of the NPP supporters booed the police for looking on whilst the NDC supporters defaced posters of the NPP Presidential candidate on the wall of the house.

“I was at home when I had a call from my colleague that some NDC guys were throwing stones into our Flagbearer’s house so I rushed here..we are ready, we will not allow them to come and mess up our flagbearer’s house,” one NPP supporter told Joy News Beatrice Adu.

One NDC supporter told Beatrice there were gun shots in the ensuing confusion.
