The home of popular National Democratic Congress (NDC) activist in the Ashanti Region, Appiah Stadium, has been burnt. He lives in Kokoben, a suburb of Kumasi, the regional capital.
The incident happened in the early hours of Monday, 11 December.
Appiah Stadium, confirming the news in an interview with Chief Jerry Forson, host of Ghana Yensom on Accra100.5FM on Monday, accused members of the Invincible Forces, a private security arm of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), of having orchestrated the attack.
“I will never stop supporting John Mahama, I won’t stop. NPP will have to kill me. I have realised that I am a pillar and an impediment in the way of the NPP. They first arrested me, they later stormed my house with guns and now they have burnt my house and car.”
“The NPP’s Invincible Forces did that,” he accused.
Meanwhile, members of the Invincible Forces have denied setting the house ablaze.
“I will plead with our youth to respect each other. No member of Invincible Forces did that. For what reason?” Kwabena Boakye, spokesperson for the Invincible Forces, told host Forson.
“His accusation is baseless. If he thinks he has been attacked, he knows what to do, he should go to the Police and stop throwing these allegations at innocent people”, he emphasised.
