The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has denied that some if its supporters attacked the residence of Nana Akufo-Addo, the presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Several news reports had indicated that NDC supporters had thrown stones into Akufo-Addo’s house, prompting security guards there to respond with warning shots.
But in a statement released to the media, Ade Coker, the NDC’s Greater Accra chairman, said it was gun-wielding NPP members who attacked NDC supporters.
Mr Coker said the NDC had photographs to back its claims, adding that the party would no longer tolerate “foolishness” from the NPP
" ..we are sending this strong signal to the NPP to caution their hooligans to refrain from any more attacks on our members," the statement read.
Mr Coker went on to call on the police to protect the country from what he called “nation wreckers”.
