The violence led to the injury of seven persons raising serious security implications ahead of the 2020 polls.
One man who became the centre of public backlash is the Minister of State in charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong who defended the operation by the security operatives.
“It is standard protocol to do this so that we can protect every candidate.
“In admission to that, we also receive intelligence information and we track, trace and neutralize where needed, but I am not comfortable sharing that information on air.”
But the Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong believes Honourable Bryan Acheampong should be parted on the back.
According to the tough speaking legislator, the comment by former president Mahama in the heat of the tension makes Bryan Acheampong a saint.
Speaking Adom TV’s Badwam on Tuesday morning, he revealed that if the NDC sees nothing wrong with Mr Mahama’s “boot for boot” threat, then Bryan Acheampong should equally not be chastised.
“If you see nothing wrong with the comments of Mahama, then Bryan Acheampong should not be criticised.
He continued: ” I am telling president Akufo-Addo, he should appoint Bryan Acheampong as the Minister of National Security should Kan Dapaah retire.
He was however quick to add that violence in any form cannot be justified and called all parties to desist from it since it has dire consequences on our democracy.
