The Pru East Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Yakwab aka Chairman Pierro was yesterday beaten to pulp by some thugs.

The thugs numbering over 30 stormed his house in vehicles around 9:00 pm and without any provocation attacked him.

According to unconfirmed reports, following months of power play in the constituency, the thugs affiliated to the Member of Parliament for the area, Mr Kwabena Donkor went there vent their anger on him.

Confirming the incident in a telephone interview, Chairman Pierro who could barely speak told this portal that the young men entered his residence at Kwadwo Bofuo and asked him to hand over all party documents at his disposal to them.

He revealed that his refusal to yield to their request infuriated them and they started attacking him from all directions.

He continued that the angry thugs, still not satisfied with their action put him in the bucket of a Mahindra pickup and dumped him at the party’s constituency office.

The Chairman is currently responding to treatment at the Mathias Catholic Hospital in Yeji.

Meanwhile, the police have refused to comment on the matter but we are are reliably informed that one person has been arrested in connection with the attack.
