He said when he realised that some executives were bent on using the vehicle to campaign for the regional minister, he asked the police to take over the vehicle but on the instruction of the regional minister, the vehicle was released to the District Chief Executive (DCE).
He said after that he saw and heard that the vehicle was being used to campaign for the regional minister.
He explained that, after meeting President Dramani Mahama in Kumasi on Sunday as part of #Changinglives tour, he went to the DCE’s office to demand the vehicle but they could not tell him where the keys had been kept.
”I ordered that they should deflate the tyres but in the process, Alhassan who has flouted party rules and has been campaigning for the regional minister came around in the regional minister’s campaign vehicle and asked why they were grounding the vehicle. When I said I was the one who gave the order, he slapped me and when I retaliated he brought out a knife and stabbed me in the head and below my eyes,” Mr Awuni said.
The incumbent MP, Mr Adusei has accused the regional minister of ordering the release of the culprit minutes after his arrest but the regional minister has denied any knowledge about the incident and the release of the culprit.
