There was near fisticuffs at the site of the Adiboo Dam in the Yendi Municipal Assembly of the Northern Region as supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) clashed with their counterparts in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Wednesday.
The NDC led by its Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, had highlighted the state in which some of the dams under construction under the One-Village One-Dam Policy are.
He had been at the Nakpachee One Village One Dam site, punching holes into the cost of the project.
But supporters of the NPP, probably getting wind of the arrival of Sammy Gyamfi and his team at Adiboo, went to the site to prevent them from addressing journalists.
The ruling party’s supporters said the NDC had not notified them nor authorities before heading to the site to hold their press conference.
The timely intervention of the police prevented a possible bloodshed.
