Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong says the National Democratic Congress has plans to kill more politicians ahead of the 2020 elections.
According to him, he has received an information on the fact that the Majority leader of Parliament has been lined up as the next Member of Parliament(MP) who will be eliminated as part of a plot to create insecurity in the country.
Kennedy added that he has informed the Majority leader of this evil intention but he seems not to believe him.
“Hon Kyei Mensah is a very nice guy but whenever you tell him something he does not take it seriously. Two days and two different sources have told me he’s next in line to be killed. The first one told me they were on ten motorbikes following Kyei Mensah. I don’t know what he has done to them. They say he has been MP for long, that’s just their reason.” He revealed.
He added that the next after Kyei Mensah will be Adwoa Safo and then Hawa Koomson.
This comes after the Member of Parliament for Mfantseman Constituency, Mr. Ekow Kwansah Hayford, was shot dead days ago.
