One person has been confirmed dead after chaos amidst gunshots took over a meeting which was being chaired by the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress Johnson Asiedu Nketia at the party’s Ashanti regional office in Kumasi Monday.
The killing was confirmed to Starr News by the regional secretary of the party Kwame Zu.
According to Ultimate FM’s Isaac Bediako Justice, the general secretary had to run for cover during the melee to avoid being caught in the gun battle between two rival factions in the party.
The meeting was to address some misunderstanding between the regional chairman of the party Nana Kwasi and a key member Joseph Yamin. The confusion erupted after both men came along with their vigilante groups who started shoving each other.
Sources say the meeting has regrouped with the aim of resolving the differences between the party kingpins.
