The Manhyia South Constituency Organiser, Alhaji Mustapha Alhassan became a person of interest following some incendiary comments he made about the upcoming 2024 general elections in a viral video.

According to him, any attempt by the ruling New Patriotic Party to rig the election will be met with brutal violence from the opposition NDC.

Commenting on the video, the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NDC, Dr Frank Amoakohene reiterated on Citi FM that the comments were made in response to an equally incendiary comment from an NPP faithful.

However, the NPP faithful’s comments were edited out of the video.

“It was a conversation between an NDC person and an NPP person. They managed to get the video out which has the NPP person’s comment edited out of the video, and then now you declare an officer wanted without having to resort to the institution to produce the officer,” he said.

He also questioned the thinking behind the police’s declaration of the Manhyia South Organiser as wanted.

According to him, the organiser was well known to the police and the community thus they could have simply invited him to the station without making a huge fuss about it.

“This is an officer that you in the police, you know, and he is a tailor to most of the policemen, and it is not as though he is even a stranger or somebody you don’t know,” he said.

He wishes the Police had approached the party to produce the organiser instead of declaring him wanted.

Meanwhile, Alhaji Alhassan was at the police station today to assist with investigations into the matter.
