Parliamentary Committee for Defence and the Interior has extended an invitation to the Minister of State in charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong and the Minister of National Security, Kan Dapaah to brief members on the deployment of persons who were involved in the violence in last week’s by-election.

Speaking to GBC, Ranking member on the Committee, James Agalga said Mr. Acheampong needs to tell the Committee on whose authority he deployed the individuals who were neither Police Officers nor members of the Armed Forces.

Background

There was a shooting by some armed security personnel at the residence of NDC Parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency on January 31, 2019.

The event, which occurred close to the poll grounds shook the wrong nerves and sparked chaos at the center.

Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam Dzata George also received some hefty slaps from the attired men when he protested events that happened at the premises of his candidate.

Thirteen party members were injured and were rushed to the Legon and 37 Military hospital for treatment and because of the happenings, the NDC withdrew from the race.

Both the NDC and NPP held press conferences to address the issue and calm their angry supporters.
