The NPP branch Chairman of Botodwina, Mr Musa, has assaulted and threatens NDC’s Communicator, Seth Boampong for speaking contrary to the School feeding programme.
On Monday, May 31, Mr Musa, his accomplices’ branch coordinator Benjamin Enim with some NPP supporters stormed the residence of Seth Boampong to physically assault him and also openly threatening to end his life if he doesn’t stop speaking against the School feeding programme.
Mr Seth Boampong is a popular serial caller for the National Democratic Congress in Mpohor District in the Western region who calls on radio socio-political programmes to speak for NDC whilst addressing challenges confronting his community (Botodwina) and its environs.
Mr Boampong has for the past 3 weeks shares the frustration of his community over the lack of feeding to pupils in his area.
It is on record that the caterers of the school feeding programme have not been cooking since school reopened in Botodwina.
Since he’s being the mouthpiece for the community, teachers and parents together with the pupils of the affected school lodge complaints to him over the pending issue.
He then visited the school for over a week to ascertain the truth in the complaints and started firing on all available platforms regarding the predicament of his community.
He continues to hammer on the issues on almost all social-political programmes in and around Sekondi-Takoradi, Shama and the Ahanta enclave.
This attracted the displeasure of the NPP folks who think the NDC caller was denigrating the image of the Regional School Feeding Coordinator who doubles as the NPP Regional Women’s Organiser, Mrs Abena Kwallah.
They, therefore, took the law into their hands to assault Seth on Monday evening.
Seth reported the case to police on Tuesday, June 1, 2021, after which medical forms were issued to him for a medical checkup and medication.
The culprits, Mr Musa and Benjamin Enim were invited by the Shama District Police Command and they have been cautioned waiting for prosecution.
The NDC Regional Communication Officer, Richard Kirk-Mensah, has visited the Shama District Police Command to know how the case is being handled.
ASP Fred Atta Yeboah has assured that the case will put before the court immediately after the preliminary investigation is completed.
