DCOP Sanziri addressing the media expressed disappointments at the conduct of the military who she described as having invaded the constituency without any prior information to her.

Earlier, supporters of Mr Nartey who staged a demonstration for their inability to exercise their franchise on allegations their names were deleted from the register threatened to vote skirt and blouse in the 2016 general elections.

At Ahwiam, where the military had stationed armoured vehicles, residents boo and jeered at them, after Mr Nartey had declared their presence in the community was intimidating residents and his followers.
