    Two ARRESTED over Odododiodio violence

    The James Town Police Command in the Greater Accra Region have arrested two persons in connection with the recent electoral violence between National Democratic Congress (NDC) and New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters at Odododiodio constituency.

    Supporters of the two leading political parties were seen in a video throwing bottles as well as hurling stones and insults at each other.

    It is not clear what sparked the supporters of incumbent NDC MP, Nii Lante Vanderpuye and NPP’s Nii Lante Bannerman, to start violent exchanges.

    The attacks have been condemned by the President, Nana Akufo-Addo who was on a campaign tour to the constituency yesterday.

    “It is not about fighting. If you [politician] have to used violence to win, then you don’t have anything for the constituents.

    “So, everyone who does that should be ignored and condemned. Elections are just a contest of ideas, and we don’t need violence to be able to do that.”

    “So, please, I beg of you, we don’t in violence in our country. We want peace. The world is watching Ghana in our upcoming polls and we should show them that we respect ourselves and understand democracy well”, the President said.

    Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ghana Police Service, ASP Afia Tenge confirmed to the media that two person have so far been arrested in connection with the violence.

    She said that the two persons are assisting the Police with investigations.

    “Regarding the Odododiodio violence, the James Town Police have arrested two persons to assist with investigations…,” she said.
