No Arrests Yet After Monitoring & Evaluation Minister Was Attack

Dr Anthony Akoto Osei, Minister for Monitoring and Evaluation

No arrests have been made so far, more than 24 hours after some aggrieved New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group members went on rampage and disrupted a meeting called by the MP for Tafo-Pankrono, Dr Anthony Akoto Osei.

XYZ News sources also indicate that none of those who have publicly acknowledged participating in the violence against the Minister for Monitoring and Evaluation during which plastic chairs and other properties were destroyed, has been invited yet.

Pankrono constituency Communications Officer of the NPP who spoke to XYZ News earlier this morning, however, says a formal complaint has been lodged with the Police.


The timely intervention of some NPP officers and the Police prevented the angry youth from physically attacking the MP on Sunday.

Dr Akoto Osei was whisked away as the aggrieved NPP supporters smashed plastic chairs and other properties to register their displeasure to the lawmaker.

The members of the Delta Force said their attack was over failed promises given them by the MP prior to the 2016 polls.

In an interview with XYZ News, one of the angry members said they were employed to protect ballot boxes during the 2016 elections with full assurance of securing them jobs in the country’s security devices. However, two years down the line, those promises are yet to be fulfilled reason for their actions.
