Some loyalist of suspended chairman for Asawase Constituency, Mr. I. K Brenya of the ruling NPP in the Ashanti region were engaged in a fierce free-for-all brawl at a venue for vetting of constituency executives.

The vetting was underway at the Ojampa Hotel which is in Kumasi when a group of supporters who claimed to be loyalist of I.K Brenya stormed the venue, accusing the Ashanti Regional Chairman, Mr. Bermard Antwi Boasiko a.k.a Chairman Wotumi and the Chairman of vetting Committee, Mr Amoako Tuffour, for masterminding the disqualification of their potential candidate from the chairmanship race in the Asawase Constituency.
