NDC, NPP clash in Deme over ‘Togolese voters’
Reports from Deme, a border community in Dzodze in the Ketu North constituency suggest that supporters on the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) have clashed.
According to Citi News‘ King Norbert Akpablie, the supporters of the opposition party were “lurking in the bush to prevent people they perceived to be Togolese” from crossing the border to vote in the elections.
“The NDC upon hearing the information led by their constituency chairman moved to area to confront them,” King Norbert reported.
This led to chaos with some of them being This led to a confrontation between the two groups and it is as yet unclear how many people were injured in the scuffles.
King Norbert also reported that the police have arrived at the scene but initially had issues controlling the crowd. A man was brutalized by suspected sympathizers of the NDC who thought he was one of the people stopping voters. He was eventually bundled into the police pickup and driven away.
