The youth wing of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on the Police to arrest the National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye popularly known as Nana B for allegedly assaulting Sammy Gyamfi who is the Communications Officer of the NDC.
Nana B in a video which has gone viral on social media is seen assaulting Sammy Gyamfi in the studios of Accra based radio station, Asempa FM on Friday, January 1, 2019.
The alleged assault occurred during the station’s political talk show, Ekosii sen.
It is unclear what led to Nana B attacking Sammy Gyamfi but reports say Gyamfi was blasting the NPP for the violence recorded at the Asawasa West Wuogon constituency by-election when he incurred the anger of Nana B.
This led to the youth wing Organising a press conference late last night where National Youth Organizer of the NDC, George Opare Addo, called on the Police to arrest Nana B within 24 hours.
“We demand the immediate arrest of the violent thug, Henry Nana Boakye within 24 hours. If by Monday, the arrest has not been effected, we will consider this an abdication of the responsibility of the police administration. We will have no other option than to mobilize our members to demand justice for our comrade,”
“We condemn in no uncertain terms the assault on no mean a person than a national officer of our party. It is worth noting that this same thug of a Youth Organizer, Henry Nana Boakye yesterday instructed bandits associated with the NPP to attack our Deputy National Youth Organizer, Eric Edem Agbana.”
“The NPP has demonstrated yet again the ‘All die be die’ mantra posited by their President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has become their political philosophy. Indeed this is not an isolated case of gross violence displayed by the NPP under the Akufo-Addo led government,” George Opare Addo added.
The NDC also called on Asempa FM to blacklist Nana B from their platform.
