The Police have begun investigations into some comments passed by the Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Obiri Boahen.
Mr Boahen recently made some comments which could ignite violence in the 2020 elections.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Juliana Obeng of the Public Affairs Unit of the CID says the police administration has initiated steps to investigate that comment.
“The other issue has to do with statements made by a New Patriotic Party (NPP) General Secretary, for that administration has made me understand that they have initiated steps to investigate the matter and we will soon come out and let the public know”.
Mr Obiri Boahen is said to have warned that anyone who attempts to disrupt the upcoming compilation of the new Voter’s register would be beaten mercilessly.
According to Nana Obiri Boahen, the violence that happened during the Ayawaso West Wuogon bye-election was just a tip of the iceberg, warning of more grievous punishment for persons who attempt to foment trouble during the exercise.
“Stay home if you don’t agree to the compilation of the new register because anyone who tries to disrupt the exercise will be beaten. We will beat you mercilessly. What happened in Ayawaso is just a tip of the iceberg,” Nana Obiri Boahen said in an interview on Dadi 101.1FM.
