A former Deputy Minister of Local Government under the erstwhile NDC government has been attacked by persons believed to be from the staples of the NPP’s Invisible Force, a vigilante group aligned to the ruling government, on Tuesday Morning, 28th March, 2017.
Hon. Emmanuel Kwadwo Agyekum was with his family when his house was beseeched by five persons who identified themselves as part of government task force charged to retrieve all government cars in private hands especially former government appointees.
Speaking to Ahotor FM’s Morning show host Emmanuel Quashie Mr. Godfred Dapaah, the secretary to the former Minister, confirmed the attacks.
Adding that it took place when the former deputy minister requested to know the identity of his assailants.
The unidentified persons searched through the home and left the house without any property.

The former Deputy minister and family are safe.
