The National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate for the Ayawso West Wuogon by-election, Delali Kwesi Brempong, has described reports that gunshots were fired in his house during the election as "clearly it is an afterthought."
Speaking to Kasapa FM, Brempong said that claims by National Security minister, Kan Dapaah, that gunshots were fired from his house are false.
The minister had, before the Justice Emile Short Commission, said that national security men who were at the candidate's house during the election were responding to shots fired in the house.
He is quoted as saying: “There were no gunshots from my house and there cannot be gunshots from a pharmacist’s house."
"Somebody who has taken an oath to protect lives, I think clearly it is an afterthought. If anyone says there were gunshots from my house then I think the person is dreaming or hallucinating."
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Brempong stated that the commission is yet to invite him formally to testify.
He explained that he would willingly oblige so he could assist the commission with respect to the violence that occurred during the by-election.
Violence erupted at the Bawaleshie Park area during the election, resulting in six persons sustaining gunshot wounds.
A number of others were allegedly arrested and armed masked men reportedly from the National Security assaulted several others.
The three-member Commission of Inquiry set up by President Akufo-Addo has a month to complete its public hearings.
