The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has released a statement condemning attacks on Mr. Kwabena Agyepong by an angry crowd on Tuesday at the party’s headquarters.
Mr. Agyepong, the party’s General Secretary, was believed to have gone to the NPP building on Tuesday to attend a meeting and to also deliver papers on a lawsuit filed by a group supporting suspended party Chairman Mr. Paul Afoko.
He is reported to have stormed out of the meeting shortly after his arrival and was confronted by an angry crowd stationed at the HQ premises.
The crowd booed him and his vehicle was also vandalized.
Below is the full statement
The NPP condemns the attack on the vehicle belonging to the General Secretary Kwabena Agyepong, at the party Head Office this afternoon.
A Steering Committee meeting had been fixed for Tuesday 27th October, 2015. The General Secretary brought to the notice of the meeting an application for Interlocutory Injunction against the meeting.
The meeting however continued as members had not been served any restraining order.
The General Secretary later on came to inform the meeting of an attack on his car downstairs, which had resulted in a crack on the back screen.
Apparently, in the course of the meeting, word had gone out to the media that the General Secretary had served an injunction to stop the Steering Committee meeting, and that led to the attack on the back screen of his car.
Shortly after, the General Secretary left the office in his car.
The Steering Committee resolved to replace the rear screen of the General Secretary’s vehicle.
The party vehemently condemns the attack on the vehicle, and will conduct further investigations.
