The on-going parliamentary primaries in the Sunyani East Constituency nearly took an unexpectedly bloody turn after some irate party youth allegedly assaulted Mr. Musah Damtarrh, the constituency Chairman in the early hours of Saturday.
According to Mr. Damtarrh, he and two other party supporters were returning from the Sunyani residency, when the three attackers assaulted them on their way at gunpoint.
The 3 attackers, who were also wielding other assault weapons, Mr. Damtarrh believes were under the impression that he was supporting one of the candidates. But for the intervention of bystanders, the situation could have been very different.
Confirming the incident to the GNA, Mr. Damtarrh said one Asoma Salia, popularly known as ‘Tupac’ and Asare Atua held pistols, trailed and attacked them.
Meanwhile, voting appears to be going on unhindered, as the Police claim they are yet to receive any official complaint in the matter.
