Former Ashanti Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Yaw Owusu Bimpeh he knows the accused years back when he [Yaw Owusu Bimpeh] was youth organizer for NDC in 1992 till he became Regional Chairman of the party in the Ashanti Region.

“I know Seidu Yakubu. He is neither NPP nor NDC. He always bumps into our political activities”, Mr. Yaw Owusu Bimpeh revealed on Kumasi-based Nhyira FM in an interview monitored by following allegations that Seidu is a member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Meanwhile, Pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP), vigilante group, Delta Force has dissociated itself from Asante Kotoko’s notorious supporter, Seidu Yakubu Mba as a member of the group.
