A viral video circulating on social media purported to be burnt husband and a woman caught in bed by the Deputy women organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party in Akokeri (Ashanti Region) is not only malicious but a wicked calculated attempt to denigrate the party.
A statement issued by the Ashanti Regional women’s organiser Nana Ama Ampomah revealed that it is false and demonic attempt by some wicked people to drag the party in the mud.
Below is the full statement:
My attention has been drawn to a video of a burnt man and woman. The caption of this video, which is on circulation, claims the two were burnt by one deputy women’s organiser of our beloved New Patriotic Party in the Ashanti Region, Akrokeri to be precise, whom according to the caption happens to be the wife of the man.
Upon sighting this video, I did an extensive check and verification at the various constituencies and towns in the region including Akrokeri itself to confirm the veracity and authenticity or otherwise of this video and its accompanying caption.
I can state without any shred of doubt that, none of our women’s organisers nor deputies has committed such a heinous crime. This is clearly the handiwork of some mischievous persons, and for that matter must be treated with all the contempt it deserves.
Thank you very much.
Nana Ama Ampomah
Ashanti Regional Women’s Organiser, NPP
