The entire building of the NDC Parliamentary candidate for the Ledzokuku Constituency, Mrs. Benita Sena Okity-Dua, a former Miss Ghana has been razed down by fire suspected to have been set by her own party supporters who do not want her to be their candidate.
So far, properties worth over forty million new Ghana cedis have been reported as destroyed, though there were no human casualties.
The incident occurred on Wednesday between 4:30 and 5pm. Athorities are still investigating with arson high on the list of suspicions.
In an interview with Benita Sena Okity-Dua, she hinted that even though the Fire Service is yet to confirm the cause, she suspects foul play.
She therefore accused some people in her area of seeking her downfall, to force her to resign as the parliamentary candidate for the party. The NDC Parliamentary candidate thanked God that no casualty was recorded and said there is no success without a story.
She assured that the party will maintain the seat in the up-coming general elections.
