A meeting of executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Salaga South constituency of the Savannah Region turned chaotic after a disagreement.
According to reports, the incident happened on Sunday and was set off when the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for the constituency, Hajia Zuweira Ibrahimah, besieged the constituency office to stop the meeting.
According to a report by 3News, the meeting incident happened on Sunday, May 16.
â€œSome of the executives were severely beaten to a pulp while properties including plastic chairs were destroyed.
â€œIn a 58-second video in circulation, the irate youth said to be supporters of Hajia Zuweira Ibrahimah were seen vandalising some properties at the constituency office,â€ the report said.
