Mahama condemns shooting at NDC Kumasi office

Former president John Dramani Mahama has called on the police and other relevant security agencies to find culprits behind the shooting incident at the NDC’s Ashanti Regional office and bring them to book.

The former president in a Facebook post described the incident as a criminal act and voiced his disapproval for it.

“I strongly condemn this incident. It is clearly a criminal act, and I call on the police and relevant security agencies to investigate, immediately apprehend the culprits and subject them to the full rigours of the law,” he stated.

Two persons were shot at the Ashanti Regional Office of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Monday afternoon by someone eyewitnesses say is a member of the party’s vigilante group, the Hawks.

The incident happened during an altercation between at least one of the victims and the shooter.

According to an eye witness, the assailant shot an NDC man thrice. First in the leg while he ran and twice in the chest at close range as he lay vulnerable.

The man whose identity is yet to be confirmed was rushed to the Komfo Anokye Teaching hospital but has died. A statement from the party has confirmed the shooting and death.
