Officials of the EC in the constituency said they fear for their lives following the ransacking of their office.

Mr Worlanyo said the group arrived in an NDC vehicle branded with the posters of President John Mahama and the parliamentary candidate in the area.

He said, “It took about two hours before they dumped it in front of the office and left. We have checked the printer and it is not working.”
