An NPP communicator in the Northern region, Fredrick Tahiru, has said sorry after he allegedly sank his teeth into NDC counterpart's cheek during a heated radio discussion on North Star FM in Tamale.

Tahiru, who publicly rendered an unqualified apology to Mahama Zakaria, noted on NEAT FM’s morning show Ghana Montie that – “We are not enemies, we are brothers.

The duo on NEAT FM agreed to meet later to amicably resolve the alleged tension created by the unfortunate incident.

“We will meet today. I [Fredrick] will go to Zakaria’s house so we solve all issues. He is my junior brother. What happened was unfortunate. Politics is not about war,” he said. 

The bitten Saga

The two were speechifying the call by NDC’s General Secretary, Asiedu Nketia to have the running mate of the NPP, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia arrested for allegedly falsifying documents to deceive the Electoral Commission [EC].

At some point in the argument, the NPP's Fredrick Tahiru referred to provocative comments by an NDC communicator known as Robert on Kuamsi-based Boss FM that the NDC is prepared to “kill” during election 2016.

Fredrick also said on NEAT FM that Zakaria described Dr Bawumia as an “unserious” politician during their heated debate.

Frederick Tahiru reportedly used the occasion on North Star radio to respond to the NDC man in Kumasi - he said the NPP is even more prepared than the NDC to use violence if provoked.

But the NDC's Mahama Zakaria in reaction, condemned the initial comment made by Robert and also went ahead to criticise his NPP colleague for giving an "extremist response".

"I thought that what our communicator said was not in good taste, but then you don't come and justify and show how prepared you were," Mahama Zakaria.

According to the NDC man, Fredrick Tahiru also took exception to being described as an extremist and began to heckle him.

Fredrick Tahiru hit Mahama Zakaria's hand while he was gesticulating with his hands.

"I saw that he was up to something so I hit him back and we started struggling," Zakaria said.

He said the exchanges got a bit physical and was bitten on the right cheek by Tahiru. He was taken to the Kabsad Hospital in Tamale, treated and later discharged.
