General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, believes the conduct of President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo in relation to tackling vigilantism stimulates violence.

The NDC Chief Scribe demanded to know whether "between the leaked tape that allegedly captures the voice of Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo and those who caused violence during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, which one must be prosecuted first?"

To him, President Akufo-Addo should first have ordered for the arrest of the perpetrators of that electoral violence instead of attempting to crucify the NDC National Chairman.

Reacting to the charges against the NDC's Chairman, General Mosquito as he is affectionately called said "Nana Addo is not a man of peace because violence has always be his trademark."

Speaking on Okay FM's 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he explained that the genesis of Ofosu-Ampofo's leaked tape is questionable; reiterating that Ayawaso West Wuogon by election violence should be of paramount interest to the government.

"I don't understand why Ofosu-Ampofo should be crucified while those who shot to death others, go unpunished . . . the President's attitude is calling for and enkindles violence," he fumed, adding that "for peace to be restored its goes beyond Law because there is common truth about peace and violence".
