The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has wondered why Nningo Prampram MP, Sam Nartey George, is still alive if he claims “several rounds of ammunition were fired” at him by the members of pro-government vigilante group Invincible Forces.
Addressing a press conference on Thursday, the Communication Director of the NPP, Mr Yaw Buaben Asamoa, who is also the MP for Adentan, said: “My colleague in parliament, the Hon Sam George – and I would love to read out what he has put on his Facebook wall – I’m sure all of you have seen it; ‘I have just been assaulted by several members of the NPP Invincible Forces attired in National Security Council shirts and vests’”.
“How he knew they were Invincible Forces when they were wearing a dress which is not Invincible Forces, only he knows, as brilliant as he is”, Mr Adamoa wondered.
He continued: “Now listen, we are talking about guns here: ‘They fired several rounds’. We all watch movies, don’t we? And you see what happens when somebody receives several rounds … ‘They fired several rounds of ammunition at me’, he quoted Sam George.
“What was the distance? Were the guns pointed directly at him? Was he facing them? As we speak, Sam George is alive enough to have written on his Facebook Wall after having been shot several [times]. Has he been to the hospital? We haven’t seen any blood on his body, and yet he’s told the whole world that several rounds [were fired at him]. And this is coming from a legislator of this country. If this is not orchestrated, what else would have been orchestrated?”
Mr Sam George has, however, been captured on video receiving slaps and blows from some macho men he had a confrontation with as he monitored the by-election.
The NDC pulled out of the election over some shooting incidents at La-Bawaleshie.
