The Drobo Police in the Brong-Ahafo Region have arrested Samuel K. Kusi, the district coordinator of National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO), for assaulting a constituency officer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Mr Kusi, who doubles as the Jaman South National Democratic Congress (NDC) Constituency youth organiser, was grabbed on Friday, March 13, after allegedly mercilessly beating Stephen Kwabena Afriyie, NPP’s constituency research and elections officer of the area on Thursday.

The suspect allegedly assaulted the victim at a police station him on admission at the Drobo Polyclinic for more than 24 hours.

The NADMO coordinator is being charged with assault and causing damage, the officer in-charge of the case, confirmed to DAILY GUIDE yesterday.

In a press conference addressed by NPP constituency executives in Jaman North on Friday, the NPP accused the Jaman South District Chief Executive, (DCE), Madam Dora Tamea, for reportedly masterminding the callous attack on the NPP stalwart.

However, the DCE had vehemently denied any role in the attack. She told DAILY GUIDE that she knew nothing about the incident, adding that she would never hatch such evil plot against the NPP man.

Giving the facts of the incident, the Communications Officer for the Jaman South NPP, Samuel Obeng Takyi, said on Thursday, March 12, around 2:30pm, the victim went to Japekrom to meet his friends.

While they were chatting, they saw the official vehicle of the DCE passing by carrying the suspect and one other NADMO staff called Edward.

They said that after about five minutes later, the victim saw Edward approaching them and taking pictures of them. So he confronted Edward and asked him to delete those pictures which nearly ended up in a fight.

According to the NPP, the victim left the scene, but Edward called his boss (the suspect) that he had been assaulted by the victim, where the suspect came to pick him to lodge a complaint against the victim at the police station.

When the victim heard of this, he decided to voluntarily go to the police station to tell his side of the story.

According to the victim himself, immediately he reached the premises of the police station, the suspect pounced on him, gave him hefty blows severally and pushed him with his motorbike into a nearby gutter. The motor fell on the victim as he struggled in the gutter.

It took the intervention of two police personnel on duty and a civilian who rescued the victim from the hands of the NADMO coordinator. He had bruises all over his body and experienced internal body pains.

According to the NPP, the victim has become the target because of his recent exposé of some of the alleged wrongdoings in the administration of the DCE, some of which are the alleged distribution of GH¢500 for each candidates of the botched district assembly elections perceived to be members of the NDC to run their campaign and the alleged distribution of chemicals and fertilisers among NDC officials meant for farmers.
