Arrest irate youth who vandalized party office – NPP Bawku West executives

Bawku West Constituency executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has asked the District Police Command to arrest irate youth who vandalized the party office and some offices of the district assembly on Tuesday, over rumors that Madam Victoria Ayamba was to be appointed as the District Chief Executive of the area.

The irate youth said, they did not want the appointment of Victoria Ayamba as DCE, but rather their best bet Mr. Patrick Ayaaba, who is an assembly member for Teshie, a suburb of Zebilla.

But in a crunch meeting held by the constituency executives on Wednesday, they described the acts of the irate youth as unacceptable and unanimously asked the police to arrest and prosecute the perpetrators. Bawku West constituency Organizer, Daniel Tampuba, told Citi News the decision was taken in the best interest of the party and to avoid future occurrences of such impunity.

“The meeting went on successfully, all the executives and security apparatus were present and we unanimously agreed that, the acts that they committed were a criminal act and so we have asked the police to investigate the matter and arrest those who committed them. We are not going to condone any criminal by any party member for them to say that they must be forgiven, that will not happen” he said.

“So we have given the police instruction to arrest the perpetrators and bring them to book to serve as a deterrent to others because the NPP is a party that respects law and order,” Mr. Tampuba stated.

Bawku Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Yao Tettegah, disclosed that, police has commenced investigations into the matter and the perpetrators will be brought to book.
