Some angry youth in the Ekumfi Constituency in the Central Region have burnt down a vehicle belonging to the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The move, according to Adom News’ Kofi Adjei, is to prevent the incumbent Member of Parliament, Abeiku Crentsil from challenging the just-ended Parliamentary results.
The parliamentary candidate for the Ekumfi Constituency on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ato Cudjoe won the seat according to certified election results from the EC.
Ato Cudjoe polled 12,014 valid votes to beat the incumbent Abeiku Crentsil of the NDC who polled 11,482.
Though the defeated MP has vowed to challenge the election results in court, the youth said it is unnecessary. They also set his vehicle ablaze alleging that he had ballot boxes in them.
The youth also threatened to kill the Abeiku Crentsil if he attempts to challenge the election results in his constituency.
