The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has charged the Ghana Police Service to arrest the National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye, for allegedly assaulting the Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi.
The youth wing of the opposition party said the police must arrest Nana B within the next 24 hours or incur their wrath.
Speaking at a press conference on Friday, February 1, 2019 the National Youth Organizer of the NDC, George Opare Addo, described Nana B as a “violent thug.”
He said if the police does not arrest the NPP Youth Organiser, then the youth wing of the NDC will mobilise and seek justice by themselves.
“We demand the immediate arrest of the violent thug, Henry Nana Boakye within 24 hours.” Mr. Opare Addo said.
“If by Monday, the arrest has not been effected, we will consider this an abdication of the responsibility of the police administration. We will have no other option than to mobilize our members to demand justice for our comrade.”
On Friday, February 1, 2019, Nana B is reported to have slapped the NDC’s Sammy Gyamfi during a programme on Multimedia station Asempa FM.
The two men were both invited as guests on the political show Ekosii sen, but appeared to have lost their cool towards the end of the programme.
In a video that has gone viral of social media, Sammy Gyamfi is seen being hit in the face by Nana B.
It had to take the intervention of the host and other people in the Asempa FM studios to restore calm.
Mr. Opare Addo condemned the attack of Sammy Gyamfi, while describing the NPP as a violent party.
“We condemn in no uncertain terms the assault on no mean a person than a national officer of our party. It is worth noting that this same thug of a Youth Organizer, Henry Nana Boakye yesterday instructed bandits associated with the NPP to attack our Deputy National Youth Organizer, Eric Edem Agbana.
“The NPP has demonstrated yet again the ‘All die be die’ mantra posited by their President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has become their political philosophy. Indeed this is not an isolated case of gross violence displayed by the NPP under the Akufo-Addo led government,” he added.
