In a disturbing turn of events, Daniel Nii Sackey Aidoo, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Secretary for Domeabra-Obom Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, was brutally attacked by alleged supporters of parliamentary aspirant Isaac Awuku Yibor during a constituency meeting.
The incident unfolded during a meeting convened to elect key positions, including the Election Director, IT Director, and deputy for the constituency, as mandated by a directive from the national headquarters. According to Moses Kabu Kubi Ocansey, the Constituency Chairman, tensions arose when supporters of Isaac Awuku Yibor objected to a particular candidate and threatened to prevent him from voting. The Chairman, however, disagreed with their stance.
To address the dispute, Chairman Kubi instructed Nii Aidoo to retrieve the letter from his car, which contained instructions from the national headquarters. In a shocking turn of events, supporters of Mr. Yibor ambushed Nii Aidoo, subjecting him to a severe beating.
Chairman Kubi revealed that the Secretary lost consciousness during the assault and was promptly rushed to the hospital for medical attention. The Treasurer, Deborah Ntowry Nkansah, has urgently called on NDC Greater Accra Regional and National executives to intervene, emphasizing that failure to restore peace and order in the constituency could jeopardize the party’s standing in the upcoming 2024 elections.
Despite multiple attempts to reach Isaac Awuku Yibor for comments on the alleged involvement of his supporters, all efforts have thus far proven futile. The incident underscores the need for swift intervention and resolution within the NDC to prevent further escalation and maintain party unity in Domeabra-Obom.
