Sad news reaching this portal is that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for the Yapei-Kusawgu Constituency in the Savannah Region, Abu Kamara, has passed away in a ghastly accident.
Abu Kamara reportedly died on the spot after his vehicle ran into an articulated truck on Friday night.
His aide, Majeed Kotochi, and a yet to be identified occupant all died in the accident.
A statement from the party in the Savannah region has confirmed the untimely demise of the parliamentary candidate.
“With a heavy heart, the Savannah Regional NPP and the party at large announce the unfortunate demise of our Parliamentary Candidate for the Yapei Kusawgu Constituency, Abu Kamara. He died with an aide, Majeed Kotochi (Young Chief) and another occupant in an unfortunate accident at the Datoyili police barrier. May their Souls Rest In Peace. Amen.”
The death of Abu Kamara becomes the second time the New Patriotic Party has lost a parliamentary candidate this month after another PC Ekow Quansah Hayford was allegedly shot dead in a suspected robbery attack.
