Walewale chaos: Regional Minister’s relative accused of carrying out machete attack

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Northern Region has accused the Regional Minister, Abdullah Abubakari, of ordering a machete attack on a supporter of the party.

Northern Regional Secretary of the NPP, Sule Salifu, says the party has picked up intelligence that a close relative of the Minister carried out the machete attack and also run over the NPP supporter with a vehicle.

The NPP on Tuesday held a press conference where they accused the NDC in the Northern Region of stockpiling arms to cause mayhem during the upcoming elections this year.

The party also said Mr Abdullah has formed a vigilante group which he uses to terrorise members of the opposition parties in the constituency.

Mr Salifu alleged further that Mr Abdullah is using his influence to prevent the arrest of the perpetrator of the machete attack.

He said one Mustafa Zakaria, who is alleged to be “a direct brother” to the Minister attacked the NPP supporter.

“The NPP in the Northern Region is holding the Northern Regional Minister strictly and accountable to the incidents of brutalities in Walewale,” he said.
