Chaos at NPP HQ: Police identify vandals

The Accra regional police service has identified persons who vandalized property and caused mayhem at the New Patriotic Party headquarters on Wednesday.

Residents living in the area and some journalists were chased with machetes, clubs and other weapons by the party’s private security known as ‘Invisible Forces’.

Accra regional Police RPO, ASP Afia Tenge in an interview indicated that “a man (driver) came to lodge a complaint with the police about being attacked at the NPP headquarters.

“In the process we were able to secure some pictures and videos of people who were actually vandalizing an urvan vehicle and also we saw when the gentleman was being attacked.

“We have those pictures and we have asked the party that by close of day they should assist us to get these people. They have already assured us of their corporation and we are sure that they are going to provide us with the people.”

It is unclear why the police are awaiting the NPP to rather point out or send the alleged vandals to them when according to them [police] they have the images of the said persons.

The Invisible Forces have been accused of causing mayhem at the NPP’s headquarters in recent months following confrontations and disagreements between party supporters.

A few weeks back the suspended General Secretary of the party, Kwabena Agyepong’s vehicle was also vandalized in a similar scuffle.

The police are awaiting a report from the NPP to take its next line of action but says investigations are ongoing.
