The Ghana Police Service is on a manhunt for persons who initiated the clash between NPP and NDC supporters at Jamestown in the Odododiodoo constituency.

The incident which occurred while some NDC members were embarking on a health walk saw ten persons getting injured.

Although it is not clear what sparked the supporters of incumbent NDC MP, Nii Lante Vanderpuye and NPP’s Nii Lante Bannerman to start violent exchanges, a number of video clips widely shared on social media platforms, showed them throwing bottles as well as hauling stones and insults at each other.

According to the police, both parties have filed a complaint on the incident.

The Odododiodoo Constituency which has a history of electoral violence is said to have 50 hotspots per the Ghana Police Service’s latest assessments of flashpoints in the country, going into the December election.

In a voice note on the latest incident in the Odododiodoo constituency, the Accra Regional Police PRO, DSP AfiaTengey said some names have been mentioned and investigations have begun to get to the bottom of the incident.
