Police Open Probe Into Gun Attack At Odike’s Office

Police in the Ashanti Region have begun investigations into Monday night’s ransacking of the office of 2012 Presidential Candidate Akwasi Addai Odike.

Odike’s United Progressive Party (UFP) office in Kumasi was ransacked by unknown gunmen as they vandalised properties, his bodyguard told journalists.

According to Francis Addae, the armed and heavily-built men shot into the outspoken politician’s saloon car.

“I heard three gunshots,” he told Akoma FM’s Ekow Darko in an interview.

He added that the masked assailants could not make Odike out despite him being in the office and “Odike managed to escape”.

A report has been made to the police and investigations have begun, can confirm.

Odike has recently launched a spirited campaign against illegal mining in the Region and said to have mentioned the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, as complicit.

To express outrage and aversion against this allegation, Manhyia Palace performed rites to ostracise Odike from the Ashanti Kingdom.

The attack is therefore said to be linked to this.
