Ayawaso violence : Ex-Prez Mahama shows diplomats photos, videos of chaos

Ex-President John Mahama showed videos and photos of the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence to some diplomats.


Mahama hosted some diplomats at an interaction where he showed them scenes from the January 31, 2019 chaos.

Mahama was joined by the National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the Deputy Minority Leader James Avedzi, a former Minister for National Security Kofi Totobi Quakyi and senior members of the NDC.

The Ex-President was of the view that the actions of the masked-men who stormed the Bawaleshie polling station during the Ayawaso by-elections were criminal and must be prosecuted.

The briefing traced the history of the NPP’s introduction of the vigilante groups, their training and the dangerous decision to arm the hoodlums and also clothe them as supposed national security operatives.

The diplomats were shown videos and photos of the attacks which led to some people said to be NDC members sustaining injuries.
