Atebubu | Confusion As Crowd Threaten To Beat An NDC Activist Over False Allegation
But for the timely intervention of the military, an activist of the ruling NDC in the Atebubu Amantin Constituency in the Brong Ahafo, Raphael Gapson would have been beaten to pulp by an angry crowd.
Rapheal was alleged to have accused a bystander of influencing voters at the Zongo Nursery A Polling Station and so made a complaint to the Presiding officer, Mr. Takyi Patrick who settled the matter amicably.
But an agitated Rapheal who was not satisfied with the arrangement drove away on a motor bike and returned some minutes later with the District Police Commander.
His behaviour did not go down well with some of the people around as they accussed him of trying to foment trouble and so decided to teach him a bitter lesson.
The District Police Commander realising that things were getting out of hand called for reinforcement and the Military moved in swiftly to salvage the situation.
Speaking to banewsgh.com, the District Chief Executive for the Atebubu-Amantin District, Honourable Eric Osei, said they are aware of the volatile situation in some of the polling stations and so the military is on standby to curtail any confusion that may arise during and after the elections.
Meanwhile, calm has been restored and voting has resumed.
