Party chairman attacked by unknown assailants

BY: Abigail Bonsu

Mr Musah, who suffered head injuries and a broken jaw, was rushed to the Accident and Emergency Unit of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi for attention.

The police confirmed the attack but told graphic.com.gh in Kumasi that they were yet to make any arrest.

The attack on Mr Musah is believed to have been politically motivated, especially coming at a time when the main opposition party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), is disputing the results of the general election won by the NDC.

Meanwhile, the NPP Chairman in the Bekwai Constituency, Mr Patrick Adu Gyamfi, has described the attack as sad and unfortunate and said with the healthy relationship between NPP and NDC supporters in the constituency, “there is no way that an NPP supporter will attack Mr Musah”.

“Even during the elections, we dined together and after the elections we still do almost everything together, so for what reason will an NPP supporter attack Mr Mush?” he asked.

"The NDC and the NPP have never had any conflict over the years and so it is very unfortunate that some  people are reading politics into this assault," he stressed.

Doctors at  KATH have worked around the clock to stabilise Mr Musah’s health condition.

A medical officer at KATH,  Dr Hoyte Williams, told said the victim was bleeding profusely from the head injuries when he was sent to the hospital.

He said the victim was, however, conscious at that time and was, therefore, able to interact with the medical officers.
