Whiles urging the public to exercise restraint on the issue, ASP Ahianyo said the police will look into suspicions that he was attacked because of his activism works on social media.

The youth of Ejura in the Ashanti Region where he hails are pointing accusing figures at the Metropolitan Chief Executive of the area.

“Do you know how many people have died since this guy was forced on us as MCE? NPP will collapse and this town can’t contain us if Sualisu Bamba is forced on us again. How many people must die before Akufo-Addo realizes he has imposed a tyrant, incompetent and heartless mafia boss as our MCE.

"First, it was Rauf, and one guy at Hiawoanwu and now Kaaka. What we are telling the President is that enough is enough. We won’t sit down for Bamba and his boys to rule this town like a separate territory," Inyass Awudu, a member of the youth group said.
