Victims Of Assault Speaking Out In Video Documentaries…..
A new documentary making rounds paints, a bleak picture of the Danquah-Busia party, positioning them as a violence prone unit that is not ready for political office.
The documentary, worked on by an independent private production company, Young Executives Forum, details chilling accounts by some members of the party.
Mohammed Atuluk, an aide to Paul Afoko, escaped death by inches, but leaves with a permanent injury in one of his arms, following attacks on him at the NPP National Headquarters in Asylum Down,by the Akufo-Addo’s Invincible Forces, has started telling his ordeal.
Another party member, Philomena Arthur, alias Maame Araba, who used to be a supporter of Prof. Frimpong Boateng, former Chief Executive of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, has also been captured in a short video, revealing how Hajia Fati, an Akufo-Addo loyalist at the National Headquarters, beat her to pulp, leaving her hospitalized for several days.
This, she said was done by Hajia Fafi and some thugs, stationed at the NPP headquarters, because she does not support Nana Akufo-Addo. Her clothes where torn by the thugs, leaving her naked in the full glare of onlookers.
She recounted how, ex-NPP National Vice-Chairman, Fred Oware, had to begged her to stop Hajia Fati’s arrest, because Nana Akufo-Addo, had implore him to do so, to enable him investigate the matter and resolve it.
But till date, the matter has not been resolved, because after leaving the hospital, calls to Fred Oware for the matter to be resolved, went unanswered.
Maame Araba, also revealed how her beloved husband, who used to work for the NPP at the National Headquarters and was on the party’s payroll, was dismissed, because she had reported Hajia Fati’s assault on her to the Nima Police.
Things are tough for the family now, and Maame Araba, is not in the mood to support the NPP, to have Akufo-Addo elected as President in next week Wednesday’s presidential poll.
Apart from Araba and Atuluk, one Nana Kwame has also been crippled following assaults on him by Akufo-Addo’s Invincible Forces. The former second hand clothes dealer is unable to work, feed himself and his family.
The Herald, is informed that, there are several videos, recounting events of the last few years at the hands of key figures within the party under Akufo-Addo’s leadership.
All this inner-party victimization, were due to the fact that, during their intra-party primaries, they threw their support behind other worthy aspiring contestants, and not the current flag-bearer.
The worst part of this expose is that, perpetrators of the violent acts, faced no consequences for their actions.
After suffering grave abuse and victimization, they speak of their pain and how they lost appetite for a party that, has been plagued with violence in the build up to this year’s elections.
It would appear that these victims are speaking out ahead of the elections, so that the public, can see the dark side which the party does not want the public to see.
On record, they are seen and heard sharing emotional accounts of brutality at the hands of persons close to key executives of the party.
Persons they knew and had worked with cordially, under the leadership of the previous flag-bearer.
The Young Executive Network, ended their documentary by urging Ghanaians to use their conscience; before voting for a divisive and seemingly dictatorial and violent person.
