The attack on the Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organiser for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Kwame Baffoe (Abronye DC), was not orchestrated by members of the party’s private security arms, the Delta and Invincible Forces, Nana Obiri Boahen, Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, has said.
According to him, the attack is a criminal action that was orchestrated by some miscreants who must be apprehended and dealt with according to the law.
Abronye DC is on admission at the Duayaw Nkwanta Catholic Hospital after he suffered fracture and shoulder dislocation from the beatings he received from hoodlums on Saturday, January 13, when he was leaving the residence of the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Atebubu-Amantin having met with some party members on his national executive campaign bid.
His car was also destroyed in the process by the thugs believed to be supporters of the NPP. They are reported to have carried out the attack in protest over constant calls by Abronye DC for government to sack the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister Kwaku Asoma-Cheremeh.
Some believe that the attacks were orchestrated by the Delta and Invincible Forces.
However, speaking on the Ghana Yensom show hosted by Chief Jerry Forson, on Monday January 15, Mr Boahen said this assertion should be dismissed.
He said: “The people making this comment that Delta Forces and Invincible Forces were the ones who attacked Abronye DC are making a big mistake. Some people attacked the NPP youth organiser and you say, by extension, it is the vigilante groups that did that? Do you think the Delta and Invincible Forces are a bunch of lawless characters? Such assertions are baseless.”
