Sam George's attacker is a wanted armed robber - Nii Lantey Vanderpuye reveals

NDC Member of Parliament (MP) for the Odododiodoo constituency, Edwin Nii Lantey Vanderpuye has said his party will not leave Sam George’s attacker to go scot free no matter how high he is being shielded by the ruling party.

According to him, members of the NDC are very much familiar with the security man who attacked Sam George at the La-Bawaleshie polling station during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, and will ensure he faces the full rigour of the law.

He disclosed that, that particular security personnel has been on the police wanted list since when the NDC was in power, but escaped at the time to the North and returned when the NPP won power.

“We know the guy who slapped Sam George, MP for Ningo-Prampram, to be an armed robber who has domiciled in my constituency at Old Fadama for some time. He was being pursued and run to the North and hid himself and he came down when there was a change of government,” he said in an interview on Joy FM.

“He supported the people to harass, beat up and kill some NDC members in Old Fadama. We know him and have always known him; he is the son of the late Chief of Nanton in the Northern Region," he said when asked if he had evidence to prove his allegation.

“Just yesterday, we heard that he has been involved in the assault and death of a young boy, who he handcuffed and beaten to death at Sowutuom, yet the police at Sowutuom have been given pressure to release him . . . but we are following keenly from the Sowutuom police to let Ghanaians know what is happening because this boy cannot go scot free and be walking on our streets freely in the name of being a member of the so-called Invisible Forces.”
