One Nana Gyamerah has learnt that not all National Democratic Congress fans are cool and calculated.
According to a report my MyJoyOnline.com, the 52-year old man was assaulted by some thuggish members of the NDC at Fumso after he was seeing making change gestures at the convoy on incumbent President John Dramani Mahama.
The change gesture, usually involves the rolling of fingers in a clockwise (or anti-clockwise) motion, accompanied by phrases like "Arise for Change", "Change is Coming" or "Ye sesamu". The gesture was popularised during the 2012 General Elections by the New Patriotic Party's presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Nana Akwasi Gyamerah, who is a native of Kuntenase in the Bosomtwe District of Ashanti region was at a funeral when the four NDC thugs grabbed him and beat him in the glare of the public. He reported that the four accused him of suggesting that Mahama's incumbency be revoked come December 7th.
It took the intervention of a lotto seller and a military officer to prevent the men from further attacking the middle aged-man as he fell onto the ground with his funeral cloth. His nephew, Asiedu Kofi Abraham says he was assaulted by the ‘machomen’ in his bid to rescue his uncle.
According to him, the family will pursue the case to its logical conclusion.
“This matter will not end here. Even if we have to go to court, we will go. If we should go to Otumfuo [Asantehene], we will go. My uncle is in pains,” he insisted.
