Arrest rampaging NPP supporters - Mahama orders Police

President John Mahama has instructed the security agencies to arrest rampaging supporters of the New Patriotic Party.

The order comes on the back of reports of attacks on supporters of the NDC following their defeat in Wednesday's polls. Some individuals who appeared in NDC adverts have allegedly been injured by jubilant supporters of the elephant family.

In a statement, President Mahama expressed dissapointment in the leadership of the NPP for looking on unconcerned.

"President John Dramani Mahama has expressed disappointment at the inability or unwillingness of the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to call its rampaging supporters to order, following series of attacks on innocent citizens and supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC)", the statement said.
