The Kukoum District Police Commander, DSP Robert Akwasi Boakye, has confirmed the incident in a media interview.
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.
"They didn’t stop there, they went ahead to attack others who are also deemed to be NDC sympathizers, caused harm to some of them, and also caused damage to their properties and stole some of the properties,”
This is the second time the MP's residence has come under violent attack.
