NPP condemns assault of CSU student by alleged NDC thugs in Kumasi

In a disturbing incident that has sparked condemnation, Nana Boakye, a student of the Christian Service University College in Kumasi, was assaulted by individuals suspected to be thugs affiliated with the National Democratic Congress (NDC). 

The attack occurred during a speech by former President John Dramani Mahama, when Boakye, believed to be a member of the New Patriotic Party’s students’ wing, TESCON, retorted, “Mahama will lose,” in response to remarks directed at Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.

Richard Ahiagbah, the National Communications Director for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), visited Nana Boakye on Saturday morning to express his support and condemn the attack.

Speaking on the matter, Mr Ahiagbah highlighted the gravity of the situation, emphasising that no Ghanaian should suffer such senseless and lawless abuse for exercising their right to free speech.

“It is absolutely unacceptable for anyone to be assaulted for merely expressing their opinion,” Ahiagbah stated. “Nana Boakye did nothing wrong by disagreeing with former President Mahama. The attempt by the Ashanti NDC to downplay this issue is equally troubling.”

He called for immediate action from law enforcement authorities, criticising the police for their inaction in apprehending the perpetrators.

“It is deeply troubling that the police have not taken action to arrest those responsible for this vicious assault on Nana Boakye. We demand justice for him and a thorough investigation into this matter.”

Mr Ahiagbah is urging the government and relevant authorities to ensure the protection of free speech and to hold those responsible for such acts of violence.
