ACP Agyapong Asare further stated that his outfit was going to pursue all persons involved in the matter, including the NDC constituency executives in Nkwanta North.
“Most of them have run away, it does not mean that we are going to stop our investigations. The police will continue to pursue them because the law frowns on the kind of behavior that they put up.”
Meanwhile, the Deputy Constituency Organizer for Nkwanta North, Samson Nfulamba, who spoke to Citi News from his hideout noted that they were not hiding because they were afraid the police will arrest them.
