Security Analyst, Col (rtd) Festus Aboagye says the clash between supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at Odododiodoo Constituency could easily have been avoided if the former had chosen routes that are not the latter's territory.
A peace walk at James Town yesterday turned bloody between supporters of the NDC and NPP in the Odododiodoo constituency.
The Ghana Police Service identified a number of areas where chaos is likely to erupt ahead of the December 7, elections and Odododiodoo was part.
Col Aboagye says these clashed was avoidable if NDC had chosen a different route and the police had also beefed up security in the area.
An eyewitness, Anny Aggrey who narrated what brought about the bloody clash said, "All those people who used to sleep here were here when the NDC supporters were passing, and they said one of them came out of the crowd and broke a vita milk bottle and they tried to talk to him to stop what he is doing, so when they were engaging him he went back to the crowd and signalled them and all of a sudden they started throwing bottles."
The fighting was concentrated at on the Atta Mills Highway at a junction called One Way.
PRO for Greater Accra Regional Police Command DSP Efia Tenge said no arrest yet but investigations have begun into the incident.
"No arrest has been made yet but the situation is calm and effort are underway to get some persons who names have been mentioned for allegedly initiating the fight arrested as investigations continue."
Tensions are normally high in Odododiodoo ahead of elections and observers flag it as a volatile constituency.
