Police stop ‘Friends of Adams Mahama’ from holding press confab

Police in the Upper East Region have stopped a group calling itself ‘Friends of Adams Mahama’ from holding a press conference in Bolgatanga.

The group had scheduled to meet journalists on Wednesday, June 3 to announce restrictions on some persons from attending the final funeral rites – Adua – for the late Upper East Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Alhaji Adams Mahama died of acid wounds on Thursday, May 21 after he was attacked by two members of his party the night before.

He was buried on Saturday, May 23 but a final funeral rite is scheduled to be held on Sunday, June 7.

It is expected to attract the crème de la crème of the largest opposition party.

According to ‘Friends of Mahama’, some persons had a hand in the acid attack on the late Mahama; therefore, the press conference was to keep them away from the funeral grounds on Sunday.

But the police indicated that the group had not informed them of the meeting and so had prevailed on them to reschedule it.

They also adduced that the meeting could stir the already tensed capital given the circumstances that led to Alhaji Mahama’s death.
