National chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Paul Afoko has advised party members to remain calm as they await police investigations regarding the attack on Upper East regional chairman, Adams Mahama.

Mr. Afoko who has denied involvement in the act suggested on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem that party members allow the law to take its course.

“Violence is not good for our party. This party was not formed on violence. We need to debate issues; not to fight. I have told everyone that we should abide by the constitution. For people who know me, they will attest to the fact that I don’t support violence. I won’t support violence. We cannot accept people using violence in this party. It’s time to stop all these and go forward properly as a party…And the police should do their thorough investigations and unearth the people behind it. All those involved cannot be allowed to get away with it. Even while investigation is ongoing, I ask everybody to be calm”, he said.

­Two men poured acid on the Upper East regional chairman of the party when he was returning from his construction site late in the night.

According to Adama Mahama’s aide, Zakariah Osman, the NPP chairman was in his car when he was stopped by two unidentified persons, and in an attempt to inquire the reason why he was stopped, they poured the substance on him.

The regional chairman was rushed to the Bolgatanga Regional Hospital where he died.
