A polling station agent of the National Democratic Congress in the Awutu Senya East Constituency in the Central Region Ebenezer Tetteh has had his head cracked with a concrete block while others were subjected to severe beatings by thugs believed to be sympathizers of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP).
The attack happened at the Oduponpkehe Registration Centre.
The victim, Ebenezer Tetteh alleged that the people who assaulted him are land guards hired by the NPP.
“I was working as a polling station agent when I heard some people in the queue complaining about how the registration process is delaying so I was just appealing to them not to leave. Before I realized one of the thugs who had come to the registration centre to hit my head with a block sending me to the ground instantly. The rate at which Land guards are roaming the various registration centers in the Kasoa and assaulting people is too much. The IGP should beef up security so that those who want to register will exercise their right in peace,” he told Kasapa News Yaw Boagyan.
