Five persons have sustained serious injuries after supporters of Parliamentary aspirant Hon. Francis Addai Nimoh and the incumbent MP for Asante Mampong, Kweku Ampratum Sarpong clashed in a free-for-all fight at the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) constituency office.
Reports say the Constituency Executives had agreed to receive the nomination forms of Hon. Addai Nimoh at 3pm after they earlier rejected the forms in the morning claiming the writings were not legible.
But as the embattled Hon. Addai Nimoh and his supporters were waiting to go and re-file the nomination forms at the agreed time, they received information that the constituency officers were closing the office in a bid to prevent him from filing as tomorrow[Thursday] is the deadline.
They then rushed to the party offices and actually saw the executives preparing to leave the office.
Addai Nimoh’s supports met supporters of the incumbent MP who had filed his nomination forms a short while ago and tempers flared up resulting in a scuffle.
In the ensuing clash, five persons sustained serious injuries.
The respected former MP was denied access to the forms by the constituency Chairman Luther Asare claiming the forms had finished on the very day the forms were given to the constituency executives.
This compelled the aspirant to pick his forms at the regional office of the party in Kumasi.
