The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) office at Somanya in the Yilo Krobo Constituency of the Eastern Region has been ransacked.
This comes in the wake of preparations by the constituency election committee to hold a balloting exercise on Saturday, January 18 for three candidates, who have been cleared to contest the party’s primaries, having received a directive from the national office.
Personnel who manage the NDC constituency office got to the office Saturday morning only to meet the sliding door of the office vandalized with the computer, register and other documents missing.
This has forced the postponement of the balloting exercise.
The Somanya District Police is investigating the matter.
It is unclear who the perpetrators of the incident are but some party sympathizers suspect some aggrieved members.
The Yilo Krobo NDC Constituency chairman, Agbo Narh, has called on party members to remain calm as the police handle the matter.
There was tension in the Yilo Krobo Constituency about the eligibility of one out of the three contesting candidates, causing the postponement of the primaries in the constituency last year.
