A member of Parliament in Ghana, Collins Dauda, was attacked Tuesday while monitoring processes at a registration center.
Dauda was confronted by a man who took out a bottle of pepper spray and spurted directly into his eyes at the Methodist Primary School registration center at Acherensua, in the Asutifi South Constituency in the Ahafo Region.
The legislator was rescued by police personnel who rushed him into a health facility.
“I went on monitoring to see how the registration is going on and at the Methodist Primary School, a gentleman pulled out something. Without provocation, he pulled out something and sprayed into my eyes and it turned out to be pepper spray. It happened in the midst of police men deployed from the regional command at Gawso. They are the ones who helped me into their car because my car wasn’t around, and took me to the hospital where I received treatment at Acherensua Health Center,” Dauda said.
He is accusing the driver of his opponent; Yaw Owusu Brempong, for being the brain behind the act which he insists was carefully planned and executed.
