Maxwell Mahama, Spokesperson of the Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Kwaku Asomah Cheremeh believes controversial Regional Youth Organiser, Kwame Baffoe affectionately called Abronye DC in political circles was beaten last Saturday for failing to apologise after insulting the Chief Imam.
Abronye DC had alleged that under the previous National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration, Alhaji Abdul Kadiri and the former Regional Minister, Eric Opoku had drunk soft drinks to the tune of GHC 50,000 in a single day.
The comments did not go down well with supporters of the Islamic Leader who demanded he retracts and apologise but he refused and insisted his claims were accurate.
Mr Mahama indicated that after he failed to take back his words, the youth group then decided to teach him a lesson and upon hearing he was in the area, they struck beating him mercilessly denying the claim the Minister had a hand in his beating.
Abronye DC is accusing the confidant of the Regional Minister, one Jafaru Yakubu of leading hoodlums to assault him while he was about holding a meeting with constituency executives at Atebubu suspecting the Minister fueled his attack.
But his spokesperson said the claims made by the Regional Youth Organiser are unfounded calling on him to substantiate his claims or forever remain quiet over the matter and not draw the Minister into his woes.
Abronye DC is currently at the Catholic Hospital at Duayaw Nkwanta receiving treatment for a fractured arm and a dislocated elbow.
