Some persons are reported to have sustained various degrees of injuries while some vehicles belonging to some party members have also been vandalized.

Richard Dela Sky who was present at the media briefing reported that the angry youth stormed the premises with knives and pistols which “resulted in a free for all fight.”

The national chairman of the NPP, Paul Afoko together with some Police Officers are working to restore calm.

“Paul Afoko left the press conference to descend to talk to the youth,” he reported.

Sky described the situation as “a very disturbing development. A never-before seen development here at the NPP headquarters.”

The angry NPP youth say they are unhappy with the current leadership of the party and are therefore demanding their removal.

Narrating some of the scenes from the NPP headquarters, Sky stated “I have so far seen about four different youth with blood stains all over their bodies. At one point, I saw one of the guys with a machete using it to stab someone who was in Otiko Djaba’s vehicle. That boy subsequently came out with blood stains over his shirt.”

Some party executives and media men who attended the press briefing are said to be held up on the first floor of the building while the Police are ensuring calm.
