Help us beef up security at Adeiso to avert any unforeseen circumstances – NDC to IGP

The Eastern Region branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has requested that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) enhance security at the district office of the Electoral Commission (EC) in Upper West Akyem.

They have accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Constituency Chairman, Nana Adei Obuobi, of causing disruptions and intimidating EC officials by leading a group of individuals to fire gunshots.
