The Volta Regional Police have issued a warning to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) not to interfere in their investigation into the Nkwanta North vandalism case.“We want to tell the party hierarchy to stay away from it so that we can deal with the issue,” the officials said.
According to the police, the issue at this point is a criminal matter that needs to be handled professionally.The police are investigating acts of vandalism committed by some of the youth in the area. They are reported to have destroyed party property after protesting against the re-nomination of Paul Dzato as District Chief Executive (DCE).
In an interview with Citi News, the Volta Regional Commander, ACP Fred Agyapong Asare, indicated that so long as the party hierarchy took little action to stop the youth from committing such offences, “we want them to stay away so that we can deal with them as criminals.”
ACP Agyapong Asare further stated that his outfit was going to pursue all persons involved in the matter, including the NDC constituency executive members in the Nkwanta North.
“Most of them have run away but 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 behaviour that they put up.”
Meanwhile, the Deputy Constituency Organiser for Nkwanta North NDC, Samson Nfulamba, who spoke to Citi News from his hideout, noted that they were not hiding because they were afraid the police would arrest them.
