The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Justin Kodua Frimpong has appealed to the Police to do their work effectively following the gunshots that were fired at Assin Praso in the Assin North constituency during by-elections on Tuesday, June 27 else they will defend themselves.
Media persons who are in the constituency covering the election reported that”More and more Police officers are coming after an individual was allegedly attacked.”
Mr Kodua Frimpong said said that the gunshots were fired in the stronghold of the NPP to scare away supporters of the governing party from voting.
“Ask yourself how did it happen? Where you stand now, look at the statistics it is the stronghold of the NPP, how come you are having gunshots here but you are not having gunshots elsewhere?
“What does it mean? It is an election and people want to intimidate our supporters, people want to scare our supporters from coming out to vote and that is what we are expecting the police to do better. We don’t want it to get to a point whereby we will be forced to defend ourselves.”
