A meeting between delegates of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and a flag bearer-aspirant, Sylvester Mensah, at Suame, a suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region on Monday, 11 February 2019, got marred with gunshots.
The incident happened at the Tafo Community Centre in the Old Tafo Municipality of the Ashanti Region.
It is neither clear who fired the gunshots nor why he did.
However, the suspended chairman of the party in the Suame Constituency, Mr Saeed Omar Shaban, has accused the former Ashanti Regional Youth Organiser of the Party, Mr Yaw Brogya Genfi of being behind the violence.
He said four Constituency executives approached him and demanded that he release a party car in his possession, to them.
Mr Shaban told Kumasi FM’s Elisha Adarkwah that his assailants engaged him in fisticuffs, leading to the firing of gunshots.
Mr Genfi, however, has denied the allegation.
