A communicator of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Northern region, Fredrick Tahiru, has allegedly bitten his counterpart in the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mahama Zakaria, during a heated radio discussion at North Star FM in Tamale, it has been reported.

The two were reportedly debating the call by NDC  General Secretary, Asiedu Nketiah, to have the running mate of the NPP, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, arrested for allegedly  forging documents to deceive the Electoral Commission, according to a report by Myjoyonline.com on Thursday.

The discussion shifted to alleged comments by an NDC communicator, Robert Owusu, on a Kumasi radio station to the effect that he would slash NPP members with cutlasses should they dare cause trouble before and after the 2016 general elections.

Mr Tahiru is said to have remarked that NPP was even more prepared than the NDC to use violence if provoked.

That statement was said to have been condemned by the NDC’s Mahama Zakaria, who reportedly accused his NPP counterpart of giving an “extremist response”.

Giving his version of events, Mr Zakaria said his use of the word ‘extremist’ did not go down well with Mr Tahiru, leading to a scuffle.

Mr Zakaria claimed Mr Tahiru hit him while he was gesticulating with his hands.

"I saw that he was up to something so I hit him back and we started struggling," he was quoted as saying.

He said the exchanges got physical and he was bitten on the right cheek by Mr Tahiru.

Mr Zakaria said he was taken to the Kabsad Hospital in Tamale, where he was treated and later discharged.

Mr Tahiru, as at the time of filing this report, was yet to comment on the allegations.
