The NPP parliamentary candidate for Yapei-Kusawgu Constituency in the Savannah Region, Abu Kamara, has died.
He was involved in a gory car crash that happened on the night of Friday, October 16, 2020.
Kamara was reportedly returning to Tamale after he had embarked on a project inspection tour.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Citinewsroom.com, his vehicle crashed into an articulator truck killing him and the others on the spot at Datoyili police barrier.
The leadership of the NPP in the Savannah Region confirmed the passing of Abu Kamara in a brief short statement.
The statement reads: “With a heavy heart, the Savannah Regional NPP and the party at large announce the unfortunate demise of our Parliamentary Candidate for the Yapei Kusawgu Constituency, Abu Kamara. He died with an aide, Majeed Kotochi (Young Chief), and another occupant in an unfortunate accident at the Datoyili police barrier. May their Souls Rest In Peace. Amen.”
Meanwhile, Kamara was gearing up to face the National Democratic Congress’ John Jinapor in the polls on December 7 for that constituency.
His death comes days after the death of the Mfantseman MP, Ekow Hayford.
As the only child, Hayford’s mother has decried his death describing it as the cruelest tragedy she has experienced in life.
She said even though she is alive, it feels like she is already dead as her son was the only one offering her physical and emotional support.
The family has thus called on the police to expedite investigations on the matter and bring the killers to book.
The latest development points that five people have so far been arrested in connection with the MP’s death.
YEN.com.gh is following this rather sad development and will update our readers with information when it comes.
