The Eastern Regional Police Command is after one Jamalo who is the driver of the Suhum Member of Parliament for allegedly slashing the head of a member of the New Patriotic Parry (NPP) communications team in the region with cutlass.
The Eastern Regional Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh told journalists that “The Suhum Police Command is investigating a case of causing harm that ensued yesterday, Saturday, August 28, 2021, around 5pm.”
“Whiles the members of the NPP in the Suhum constituency were mourning a colleague at the Suhum Council, a misunderstanding ensued between some party communicators and the followers of the MP, and in the process one Jamal inflicted a deep knife wound on the head of the victim, one Kwasi Amoani 51, and the matter was reported to the police and the complaint was subsequently taken to the Suhum Government Hospital where he is responding to treatment at the emergency ward.”
“He’s in a stable condition and another victim who suffered some bruises was treated and discharged. Meanwhile efforts are underway to get the suspect arrested.”

Several others sustained injuries in the process and were admitted to the Suhum Government Hospital for treatment.
