Member of Parliament for Asunafo South, Hon. Eric Opoku who was recently assaulted by some unknown assailants is accusing former MCE Hon. George Yaw Boakye for the near-fatal attack on his life.
He also accuses the former MCE of being behind most of the violent activities in the area.
Speaking on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia programme, the Asunafo South legislator explained that Hon. George Boakye who is bent on capturing the seat from him, has vowed to use fair and foul means.
“…despite attempts to have calm and peace restored in the area, George Boakye has resolved to continue the feud which I believe will destabilize the area,” the NDC revealed.
Attack On MP’s Residence
Some unknown assailants Sunday 1 April 2018 dawn attacked Mr Opoku at his residence at Sankore in the Brong-Ahafo Region.
The attackers, believed to be sympathizers of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), also attacked and injured three other persons, all members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in their various homes that same night.
The incident marks the second time such an act has happened in Mr Opoku’s house.
The attackers allegedly damaged three of Mr Opoku’s vehicles; a Toyota Land cruiser with registration number AE 9449-14, a KIA Spectra with registration number AE 2667-13 and VW Passat also with registration number AE 3328-14 as well as damaged the metal gate and widows of his house.
They were also alleged to have stolen Seidu’s GH¢10,400.00, a television set and a decoder during the attack.
The three injured persons have since received medical attention at the Star of Hope Hospital at Sankore where they were treated and discharged same day.
The names of the three injured persons have been given as Thomas Amponsah, Adams Seidu alias Red and Apostle Timothy.
The police command has since arrested two people in connection with the attack.
Let Sleeping Dogs Lie
However, Hon. George Yaw Boakye has denied the accusations leveled against him.
In a swift rebuttal on the same platform, he explained that efforts to have peace returned to the area have proved futile due to the intractable nature of the parties involved.
“Nevertheless, i am ready to let sleeping dogs lie,” he added.
