Nsawam Police probe assault allegation against MP

The police have begun investigations into an alleged assault case against the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for Nsawam Adoagyiri Constituency, Frank Annor Dompreh.

The Nsawam District Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police Micheal Dandy Zah disclosed this to The Ghanaian Times.

He said the case was reported to the Command and a medical form was issued to the victim, Mr. Yahousa Tanko an activist of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to attend hospital.

The MP was alleged to have assaulted Tanko, who is also the Assemblyman for Adoagyiri Zongo, last Saturday.

Either the NDC constituency chairman, Mr. William Attamudzi had called on the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. John Kudalor, and Speaker of Parliament, Doe Adjaho to intervene in the matter.

Addressing a press conference at Nsawam, he said at about 3pm on October 29, the MP allegedly assaulted the assemblyman who was on his campaign at Avarga in Nsawam.

Mr. Attamudzi, said the MP who was passing by, suddenly stopped his vehicle and confronted Tanko why he was trailing him to every village visited.

He said there was a confrontation ensued and a pastor who tried to stop the MP from assaulting Tanko, was pushed.

“Some of the NPP members have also been defacing posters of both the Parliamentary candidates and presidential candidate of the NDC in the constituency’’.

He said the case was reported to the police for investigations.

When contacted on the issue, Mr. Annor Dompreh said the story was untrue and welcomed the investigations by the police.

He said it was an attempt by the executive of the NDC in the constituency to tarnish his image.

“I am a peace loving person, and have not assaulted anybody as claimed. The assembly man has been trailing me for some time now, and I have even reported him to the police and some chiefs about the issue,” he added.
