On Thursday, June 6, 2024, an Accra High Court remanded Usman Haruna into police custody. Haruna is accused of stabbing Ato Koomson, the son of Awutu Senya East MP Mavis Hawa Koomson, during a scuffle at the Electoral Commission office in Ofaakor near Kasoa in the Central Region.

The incident occurred at around 5 a.m. on Sunday, June 2, 2024, before the day’s activities began at the EC office. Police arrested Haruna during the disturbance, which led to the stabbing of Mr. Koomson.

Haruna is scheduled to reappear before the court on June 19, 2024.

An eyewitness reported that the clash erupted over a disagreement regarding the queuing of voters seeking to transfer their votes to the constituency. During the altercation, Ato Koomson was stabbed in the chest and rushed to the 37 Military Hospital in Accra.

Additionally, three members of the NDC were injured and admitted to the Kasoa Polyclinic.
