Tension is brewing at Ejura/Sekyedumase in the Ashanti Region after thugs attacked opposition MP for the area Monday afternoon.
Mr Mohammed Bawa Braimah was on a routine tour of some registration centres in the constituency when the incident occurred at about 1pm local time.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) legislator told the police that whilst returning from Nkwanta, a community in the Municipality, he was attacked by an armed gang who then assaulted him and two others without any provocation.
The development sparked widespread agitations among supporters of the opposition NDC, who blocked the main Ejura/Mampong road prompting a police response.
An incident report issued by the police and sighted by Dailymailgh.com said the angry youth further besieged the Ejura Police Station to express their displeasure on the attack of the Member of Parliament and party faithful.
No group has claimed responsibility for the incident but the leadership of the NDC accuse the ruling government of fueling the attack.
“The MP was with the Prison Commander monitoring the registration exercise and had sent his boys to dispatch food to some NDC party agents at the polling centres. Then all of a sudden some NPP youth emerged and attacked him. He was beaten with a stick and slapped him in the face,” a Constituency Secretary, Kwa-Sam Samuel told Dailymailgh.com.
