Some supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) yesterday engaged in a bloody clash at Jamestown in the Odododiodio Constituency in the Greater Accra Region.

According to reports monitored by SilverNEWS, the Odododiodioo Constituency branch of the NDC embarked on 'Health Walk' within the constituency but the exercise was marred by violence when a misunderstanding ensued between some supporters of the  NDC participating in the health walk and some young men when the NDC were approaching the NPP’s Odododiodioo Constituency.

The Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Regional Police Command, DSP Effia Tenge in an interview with Nana Ampratwum said;

''At about 7:30 a.m., the Odododiodioo Constituency branch of the NDC embarked on a health walk within the constituency which the police had already been notified''

''The exercise was led by the incumbent Member of Parliament (MP) for the Constituency, Mr Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuije, with key party functionaries''

''When the group got to the NPP’s Odododiodioo Constituency area, known as the "Blue Gate" around the High Street, a misunderstanding ensued between a group of young men who were in the "Blue Gate" area and some supporters of the  NDC participating in the health walk''.

''One could not easily know the reason for the misunderstanding which unfortunately led to some 10 persons sustaining various degrees of injuries''

This, she said, resulted into the throwing of bottles and stones at each other, resulting in serious injuries to about 10 persons who were rushed to the hospital.

According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Accra Regional Police Command the police were called to restore order.

She indicated some witnesses told the Police that shots were fired which the PRO hinted that investigations are underway to bring culprits to book.
