About 20 police officers have taken over the Kumasi office of the Metro Mass Transit in the Ashanti region to avert a possible clash between supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the region.
According to Luv FM’s Prince Appiah, the Ashanti regional deputy Organiser of the NPP, Daniel Agyenim-Boateng, who claims to have been appointed to head the company, was set to start work today when he was suddenly confronted by followers of one Nicholas Oduro, who also claims to have been asked to head the firm by NPP kingpin Dr. Amoako Tuffuor.
The development, Prince Appiah reports has caused a standoff at the premises of the firm and slowed down operations of the company.
Suame Divisional Police Commander, DSP D.O Lomotey said police anticipated a possible clash between both factions and deployed officers to forestall peace and order within the premises of the company.
“We are hearing that about three people are claiming they have been appointed as the manager of the facility but we all know the three people can’t be managers at the same time, and, so, we have deployed police to the area to avert chaos” he said.
