Some angry youth believed to be members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Central Tongu constituency stormed a local radio station, identified as Dela Radio during a political talk show program dubbed “Horodio” and brutally assaulted a communicator of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Sources reveal that the NPP youth organizer in the constituency, Wugah Mawutor led a team of well-built men to the station to sack their representative from the studio for tarnishing the image of the party on the radio with what they considered internal party issues.
The youth then proceeded to deal with the NDC communications officer, Cartious Aziedu who attempted taking video footage of the chaotic scene as they seized his phone and gave him the beatings of his life.
In the midst of these unforeseen circumstances, we gathered that the NPP party in the constituency is divided on who to lead them as a parliamentary candidate in their upcoming primaries.
Speaking to the radio show host Emmanuel Kwame Atukpa, he confirmed the incident to indicating “the guys were about twenty from both factions of the NPP PC aspirants and the program was disrupted for about 15minutes before I managed to sack them out but the chaos continued outside”.
The NDC communications officer Cartious Aziedu in his accounts said “I was handed a heavy slap from behind while I was struggling for my phone. Another person also hit me in the chest”.
He indicated that he has since reported the issue to the police and has picked a medical form to attend hospital while police have also revealed that they are investigating the matter.
Emmanuel Atukpa recounted that the issue erupted from an alleged list of beneficiaries of Youth Enterprise Support to have been people from the hometown of the DCE which the party chairman is unhappy with.
