Members of the National Peace Council (NPC), an intervening body who sought to engage the leadership of the opposition party, the National Democratic Congress over the strong rejection of the December 2020 election results by the Electoral Commission, were attacked by some members and supporters of the National Democratic Congress.
Rev Dr. Ernest Adu-Gyamfi, the Chairman of the NPC, who announced this happening, said, the situation has traumatized some members of the Council and has requested that they be allowed to psychologically recompose themselves before they can re-engage the leadership of the NDC.
The incidents reportedly happened in the residence of the NDC presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama, and the party’s national headquarters at Adabraka in Accra.
Rev.Dr. Adu-Gyamfi said;
“We were attacked, two of our vehicles were damaged and we thought that that was very very unfortunate.”
“When we met the leadership [of the NDC], they were very cooperative in terms of our discussions, and we thought those incidents were very very unfortunate, and it shouldn’t happen again.”
Rev Adu Gyamfi who made this known in a radio interview with Accra-based Joy FM, monitored by Mynewsghana.net Thursday night [December 10, 2020] said the members were safe.
“The board met today [Thursday]” but added that “most of the members are traumatized because the attacks were very physical and in some situations, some gunshots were fired while we were there. And so most members are traumatized and they think that we need to let them maybe, psychologically recompose themselves before we can re-engage,”
