Suhum youth organiser for the National Democratic Congress(NDC), is currently in police custody following a clash between youths of the New Patriotic Party(NPP) and National Democratic Congress(NDC) over voters register.
According to youth organiser of the NDC in an audio below, the parliamentary candidate for NPP has selected people from outside the constituency to register. This reason started the fight as they also decided to stop the outsiders from registering.
The clash which resulted in some casualties started off at a secondary school called suhum senior high school (suthesco) in the municipality. Before the police could intervene, there had already been casualties. The casualties are currently receiving treatment in a nearby hospital.
NDC youth organizer for the area who was part of the incident is now in police custody for questioning.
According to eye witness, NDC members who disagree with the police are now moving furiously from Kofridua to Suhum therefore we advise that security must be vigilant in this municipality.
