One person is feared dead and another is in critical condition after two rival factions within the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) clashed and exchanged gunshots on Monday.
The incident is said to have happened when the National Chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, and the General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, met at the office to iron out issues between both factions.
“The regrettable incident occurred while a meeting between the National Chairman, The General Secretary, a Deputy General Secretary and the Regional Executive Committee were ongoing. Some men on Motorbike wielding guns attacked a gathering outside, short indiscriminately and sped off.”
“We regret to announce that one of the two men who were shot has passed on and the other is in a critical condition at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH),” a statement signed by NDC Ashanti Regional Secretary, Kwame Zu added.
