In response to this disturbing development, Member of Parliament for Okaikwei North, Theresa Awuni, took to Facebook to express her concerns.

The lawmaker stated, “We come in peace, but I am sending a warning to all the elephant members [referring to NPP] in Okaikwei North that they should not start what they cannot finish. This dawn, my boys were attacked by known NPP thugs, masked up, seized their money, phones, and other items as they queued up at the registration centre. Unfortunately for them, two were arrested. I patiently await the outcome of this arrest because that will determine our next line of action. Mind you, we are very prepared for anything.”
