The Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has denied claims that members of the party launched an attack on the Nima residence of the New Patriotic flagbearer, Nanna Akufo-Addo on Sunday morning.
According to him, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) rather unleashed its supporters to attack them while they were on a health walk in the area.
Mr Anyidoho, in a Citi News interview admitted there was some mishap around the NPP flagbearer’s house but said that could not be attributed the NDC members.
“Yes there was some small mishap at the Nima police station area but check the records, who were the ones holding the guns, was it us or Akufo-Addo’s hoodlums. Nobody in our group wielded a gun. It was Akufo-Addo hoodlums that wielded guns so go to them and ask them why their wielded guns when there was no provocation,” he said.
He added that, “There was no exchange of gun shots, it was the NPP guys who fired. There was no reprisal attack from us. They [NPP] fired. It was a one-sided barbaric attempt to create confusion and disrupt and disturb the mammoth health walk we had this morning.”
Mr Anyidoho, who said he participated in the 4-hour walk described as “blatant lies” allegations by the NPP Director of Communications, Nana Akomea that Mr Ako Gunn, one of the radio panelists freed by President John Mahama in the recent Montie trio saga led the attacks this morning.
Responding to queries about why the NDC decided to use the area around the flagbearer’s residence as part of the health walk, Koku Anyidoho argued that, Nana Akufo’s residence in the area could stop the NDC from plying that route as part of the health exercise
“He [Nana Akufo-Addo] living at Nima does not stop us from having a health walk on that road. Even where the President lives, people have health walk there, so who is Akufo-Addo?” he quizzed.
Members of the two political parties clashed on Sunday morning during a health walk of the NDC resulting in the pelting of stones and firing of gunshots.
