He told Citi FM: “It is true that a case of such nature had occurred. Some hooligans attacked the MP for the constituency, Eric Opoku.

"They attacked his house and caused damage to his Land Cruiser vehicle and two other vehicles which were packed in his residence. They also caused damage to the main Iron Gate to his house and some sliding windows and doors.
