The Northern Regional Police Command has invited the regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for questioning over his comments that the party will deploy about 40 heavily built men to all polling stations in the region to protect the ballot boxes on Election Day.

Confirming the development to pulse.com.gh the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Northern Regional Police Command ASP Ebenezer Tetteh said they invited him to hear his side of the story.

“We contacted him he is not in town; he is around the Kpandai area. So we have asked him to avail himself as soon as he comes to town.”

He explained that they cannot take any further action without hearing from Bugri Naabu.

“We will hear from him because some of the things that are being said for now we are treating as allegations so we have to hear from him directly. Before you condemn somebody you have to hear from the person. That is what we intend doing.”

Bugri Naabu at the campaign launch of the NPP in Savelugu Constituency said the party will use heavily built men in monitoring the upcoming elections.

“Members of Kukurudu, my brothers and sisters greetings to you all for the massive turnout; this means that the election is won already but what I have to tell you is that you know the NDC, they know how to steal. They stole in 2008 and snatched it from us in 2012. So I beg you my elders what I have for the youth is that this year’s election if care is not taken they will steal again.”

“So on December 7, get some young and strong men about 40 to guard the box and if the thieves come to snatch away the boxes break their legs. You were witnesses to the Supreme Court ruling, would you allow them to steal again? If they steal again we are dead so this one is do-or-die. Don't agree! If they are not afraid of guns and cutlass we are also not afraid,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service had earlier cautioned political parties who would use vigilante groups to be prepared to contend with the Counter Terrorist Unit of the Service.

But Bugri Naabu said this decision is to ensure a repeat of 2008 and 2012 does not occur.
