Some National Security Operatives are alleged to have fired gunshots at a polling centre a La Bawaleshie, injuring about six persons believed to be NDC supporters.
“In the circumstances, I have conferred with the parliamentary candidate and the leadership of the NDC, we have no option than to withdraw from the ongoing exercise,” the National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, said to the press.
Mr. Ofosu Ampofo said the party’s candidate, Delali Brempong, was basically being “held hostage” in the area.

He also said there was “serious intimidation” from national security operatives.
“We have seen people in the attire of national security almost ten at every polling station. What they are doing is shooting indiscriminately, attacking people and intimidating people… Some of our people including Sam George have been attacked.”
“As a party, we believe in rule of law. We’ve been in by-elections before and we don’t that we are in a war zone. But this by-election has been turned into a war zone. We cannot subject any of our members to danger because of the election.”
