Abubakar Saddiq was part of the angry Akufo-Addo loyalists who locked up the Asawasi Constituency office, Thursday in protest over comments made by the Chairman of the Constituency, Kumasi-based Luv FM has reported.

The incident happened on Friday after the deceased had gone to the constituency office on hearing the office had been ransacked but was attacked and murdered by unknown assailants.
