Armed Police Personnel Dispatched to Nalerigu After Angry NDC Supporters Stormed Coordinating Council
Armed police officers have been deployed at the North East Regional Coordinating Directorate in Nalerigu after some supporters of the NDC besieged the facility Sunday morning.
The opposition party supporters, according to reports, massed up at the facility alleging that the Regional Minister had bussed people from Tamale and was about transport them to his Bunkprugu constituency to take part in the ongoing voters’ registration exercise.
The angry supporters ganged up and prevented the bus carrying the people from moving, while also attempting to harm the passengers.
Communications Officer of the NDC in the Nalerigu/Gambaga constituency, Alhassan Abdul Ganiu, said the vehicle would not be allowed to continue the journey and that the police must ensure their return.
He alleged that the people confessed to receiving 5,000 Cedis each to go and register in his constituency.
The officers, however, were able to quell the confusion and restore order at the facility following an agreement with the police to escort the passengers back to Tamale.
