Machete-wielding members of the opposition New Patriotic Party’s internal security, ‘Invincible Forces’, chased out supporters of the party’s Korle Klottey parliamentary candidate at the Asylum Down headquarters Wednesday afternoon.
The commotion occurred as Nii Noi Nortey’s supporters thronged the headquarters to raise protests against a possible re-run of the primaries.
Two defeated aspirants in that primary, Philip Addison and Nii Adjei Tawiah are contesting Mr Nortey’s victory in court.
Fearing their preferred candidate could be handed a raw deal, Mr Nortey’s fans stormed the party’s headquarters to protect their preferred candidate’s interest.
However, chaos broke out as the Invincible Forces charged on Mr Nortey’s fans. The windscreen of a private car was smashed in the mayhem. Journalists were also chased out of the place.
