Kennedy Agyapong threatens Azorka Boys

The outspoken New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong says he will deal with pro-NDC group, Azorka Boys, if they do anything to disturb the peace in 2016.

During the Talensi by-elections, there were reports of sporadic shooting following a clash between the ruling NDC’s “Azorka Boys” and the opposition NPP’s “Bolga Bull Dogs” who were both monitoring the by-election in the constituency.

The first Vice National Chairman of the NPP, Freddie Blay among others were allegedly attacked after clashes between the supporters of the ruling NDC and opposition NPP, according to reports.

A member of the New Patriotic Party, Gabby Otchere-Darko, was also allegedly shot at by a drive-pass gang in a pickup.

It resulted in some injuries and damage of vehicles and properties in areas such as Tongo Central, Winkogo, Baare, Shiega and Duusi all in the Talensi Constituency.

Kennedy Agyapong told Adom News it is worrying and disappointing that electorates in Talensi decided to vote for the NDC Parliamentary candidate B. T. Baba despite the unprecedented hardship in Ghana.

He noted that those who received money and voted for NDC will pay for it in their living.

NDC MP for Nkanta North, Bless Kwabena Oti, however says the NPP is well known when it comes to electoral violence.

He stated that what happened at Talensi will be the true reflection in the 2016 general elections.
