A free for all fight erupted at Quarshie Idun polling centre in the Bantama constituency today, June 20, 2020, during the New Patriotic Party’s parliamentary primaries.

The fight was triggered after some delegates were prevented from voting.

The Bantama constituency contest is between incumbent Member of Parliament, Daniel Okyem Aboagye and Deputy Chief of Staff, Mr Asenso-Boakye.

Few hours into the primaries today, Saturday, Daniel Okyem Aboagye alleged manipulation of the constituency register.

He alleged that delegates who are now officers of the BNI are allowed to vote at some of the centres.

There was exchange of blows at the Quarshie Idun polling centre when one of the party members who worked at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was prevented from voting allegedly by polling agents of Okyem Aboagye.

This resulted in fisticuffs.

Meanwhile, reinforcement of Police arrived at the Quarshie Idun Polling station to bring the situation under control.
