The victim, Kofi Egyir is currently on admission at the Winneba Trauma Hospital; health officials nursing his wounds say he is unconscious due to the loss of blood

Recounting the incident, some eyewitnesses told Kingdom reporter Kaakyire Kweku Ademah that, the alleged thugs were found defacing some posters belonging to James Kofi Annan and the flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama at Awoyo junction.

The Winneba Police Command says it has launched an investigation into the matter.
