Mahama Cuts Short Campaign Tour Over Ayawaso Attack

Former President John Dramani Mahama says he will be calling off his campaign tour of the Volta Region over clashes in the ongoing bye election in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency.

The NDC pulled out of the election after clashing with security forces at the Bawaleshie electoral area. In a report filed by Peace FM reporters, seven members of the party have been injured with one in critical condition at the 37 military hospital.

The former President while addressing party delegates in the Ho Central constituency as part of his tour said “with respect to the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, the reports we have received indications that some vigilante groups attacked the house of our parliamentary candidate in the constituency. Some of our members have been beaten and others thrown to police cells. So, I will be returning to Accra today to familiarize myself and see what we can do to ameliorate the situation”
