The residence of popular sympathizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Kweku Appiah aka Appiah Stadium at Ahenema Kokoben in the Ashanti Region has been burnt Monday dawn.
Appiah Stadium, an avowed loyalist of ex President John Mahama confirming the incident, said he suspects members of the Invisible Forces of being behind the attack.
According to him, the black hats stormed his home with petrol contained in the popular ‘Kufour gallons’ and in 1 litre bottles, sprinkled the fuel in parts of the house and set fire leading to the burning of his Toyota Rav4 car.
Appiah Stadium narrated in an interview that the criminals preceded their arson by firing warning shots amidst daring him to step out and face them if he believes he’s a brave man.
He suspects that the latest attack stemmed from an issue he had with one Nana Prempeh who’s a neighbour and a member of the Invisible Forces.
Appiah Stadium, added he’ll not be cowed into submission by this attack and will continue to campaign for ex President John Mahama’s comeback even if that will cost him his life.
“I’ve now realized I’m a threat to the NPP, indeed they fear me. My utterances give them headache and so they’ve purposed to kill me. You got my arrested with handcuffs on my writs from Kumasi to Accra in a bid to intimidate me and stop me from bashing the NPP, that was not enough for you. Now, you proceed to my house at such an ungodly hour when I’m sleeping with my wife and two little children firing guns all over the place. But this will not break me. NPP must kill me and use my blood to fix this economy that has brought a lot of hardships on Ghanaians.”
But in responds to Appiah Stadium’s allegation, the Spokesperson for Invisible Forces, Kwabena Boakye denied the claims saying no member of the group has a hand in the alleged attack.
“No member of the Invisible Forces will burn the home of Appiah Stadium to which end? We’re law abiding people. If he has a personal issue with someone who’s attacking him, he should leave the invisible forces out of this. More importantly, there’s no member of Invisible Forces by name Nana Prempeh. I urge Appiah Stadium to file a complaint at the Police Station against that person and stop tarnishing our image. I urge the public to treat his claims with the contempt that it deserves.”
