2 Thugs BUSTED Over NDC's Congress Chaos

In connection with the violent disruptions that took place during the National Youth and Women's Congress, held on December 10, 2022, in Cape Coast in the Central Region, two more hoodlums of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been arrested.

On January 8, 2023, the suspects Iddrisu Abass alias Jango, who is thought to be the ringleader, and Dawda Mohammed Nazir, who was hiding after firing on the police, were arrested in Kintampo and Wenchi, respectively, in the Bono and Bono East areas.

After the first arrest of Abdul Halid Shaibu alias Oluu and Ibrahim Razak, who were among the 16 people sought for their involvement in the disturbances, the number of suspects detained in relation to the disturbances now stands at four.

They were allegedly arrested on January 7, 2023, at Tamale in the Northern Region as a result of focused intelligence operations.

According to a police statement, suspect Jango fired and injured one of the policemen during the arrest. He was shot in the legs by the police when they retaliated.

The injured officer is receiving medical care, and the injured suspect is too. Both are in stable condition.

After the arrest, some Wenchi youngsters gathered to attack the police team, but police have now returned the area to order and security.

The four suspects are being detained right now and are helping the police with their inquiries.

Three people were hurt and property was damaged during a violent clash between two rival groups at the Congress that broke up proceedings. The conflict involved the use of chairs, clubs, blocks, sticks, and other projectiles.

The police's intervention brought the situation under control, allowing the processes to go through to their conclusion without further incident.

16 individuals were identified as some of the participants in the violence after an initial analysis of Police-specific camera footage of the incident, and they were issued a warrant for their arrest.

Any member of the public who can give the police reliable information that results in the arrest of one of the offenders will receive a GHS 10,000 prize.

The targeted intelligence operations to arrested the remaining 12 suspects are still ongoing, and the police assured the public that they will undoubtedly be brought before the law.
