Information gathered by Kasapa News indicates the Bono East Regional Chairman of the NPP, Ibrahim Baba Bukhari has been involved in a ghastly accident at Akomfode in the Assin North District.
It is gathered that Mr. Bukhari was returning from a campaign trip at Assin Ninkyiso and was heading towards Assin Fosu direction when the motorbike he was travelling with ran into the rear portion of a Kia Truck with Registration number GX-3489-14 which was being escorted by Assin Fosu based Forestry Commission.
Eyewitness reports suggest he was overtaking the KIA while overspeeding resulting in an accident.
He was rushed to the local CHPS compound for first aid and was later referred to St. Francis Xavier Hospital in Assin Fosu.
Military aircraft was called in to transport the victim to Korlebu Teaching Hospital in Accra for further treatment following a referral by the doctors at St. Francis Xavier Hospital in Assin Fosu due to the severity of the injuries.
Meanwhile, the party hierarchy has remained tight lip about the incident.
However, sources revealed the complaint filed by the NPP Executive at the police station suggests the vehicle which belongs to the forestry commission rather, allegedly hit the chairman’s motorbike while chasing a suspected vehicle carrying wood.
The Assin Fosu Forestry Manager, Nana Kwabena Agyapong denied the claim that the commission’s vehicle rather hit the motorbike.
He was confident that a thorough investigation launched by the police into the matter will establish the fact of the matter.
