President John Dramani Dramani and leader of the incumbent National Democratic Congress, NDC, has condemned the ghastly ‘killing of the Upper East Regional Chairman of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Alhaji Adams Mahama.
The President in a tweet on Sunday said he was “horrified” by by the accident and said justice would be served.
He thus commiserated with the family of the deceased.
Alhaji Adams Mahama, who was buried on Saturday May 23 in line with Islamic tradition, was brutally bathed with acid by persons suspected to be enemies within his party.
This is because, prior to the unexpected attack, there had been a meeting in the Upper East Region where his party’s National Chairman Paul Afoko and the General Secretary were scheduled to address parliamentary aspirants there.
The said meeting, which the late Regional Chairman claimed was done without his knowledge, was disrupted by some angry youth, who physically assaulted the regional organizer, believed to have acted in cahoots with the two national party leaders to sideline the late regional chairman.
At that meeting, Mr. Paul Afoko and Agyepong were reportedly chased out of the meeting as police offered them protection from a guest house where the botched meeting was to be held.
The angry youth were believed to have been hired by the late Regional Chairman who felt sidelined.
Following these developments, many have concluded even before police investigations into the matter, that the two national leaders may have orchestrated the acid-attack on the late regional chairman as a retaliation.
The incident has also rekindled issues of factionalism and infighting among the rank and file of the NPP.
