Ayawaso Violence: No gunshots were fired in my house – DKB confesses

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for the recently held by-election at Ayawaso West Wuogon, Delali Kwasi Brempong has categorically denied that gunshots were fired from his residence on the day of the election.

National Security Minister Albert Kan-Dapaah has said members of the SWAT team who were deployed to La Bawaleshie on January 31, 2019, did not shoot at anyone.

According to him, the leader of the team reported that one person sustained “gunshot wounds” but insisted they were not responsible.

The Minister said the commander was convinced “that the shot did not come from them but probably, from within the compound [of NDC parliamentary candidate, Kwasi Brempong].”

Responding to questions at the Emile Short Commission tasked to investigate the violence that characterized the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election Thursday, Mr. Kan-Dapaah said, “They [SWAT team] do not even remember seeing any such person on the ground and that the person shot came from that compound.”

Just hours into the by-election at the La Bawalashie Presby polling station, six persons were shot at the location injuring the victims in the process.

But speaking to Akwasi Nsiah in an exclusive interview with Kasapa News, Delali Kwasi Brempong who described himself as a law-abiding and peaceful man said the claim that gunshots were fired his house is untrue and clearly an afterthought.

There were no gunshots from my house and there cannot be gunshots from a pharmacist’s house. Somebody who has taken an oath to protect lives, I think clearly it is an afterthought. If anyone says there were gunshots from my house then I think the person is dreaming or hallucinating.

He added that he’s ever ready to testify before the Commission of Inquiry should he be invited.
