The Northern Regional Police Command has called on victims of the alleged attack by a pro-New Patriotic Party (NPP) group to help the police in their investigation.

The Regional Police command has urged the clients and staff of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), and the Youth Employment Agency (YEA) who were allegedly assaulted by the so-called Kandahar Boys to come forward and identify their alleged attackers.


ASP Ebenezer Tetteh, the Public Relations Officer of the Northern Regional Police Command, condemned the actions of the group and called on individuals to assist their investigations.

“Some of these actions are actions that are against the law, and some of the methods they are using are also crude. They are attacking and beating some of the workers there as they are alleging,” he said.

“I must say that we will look into the matter and if the persons who allege they have been attacked can identify those persons who came there and did what they did to them, they must agree to assist the police to investigate the matter.”

The Pro-NPP group, the Kandahar Boys, were alleged to have raided and locked up offices of the NHIA and the YEA in Tamale, and reports indicate that some persons were injured during the incident.

The police have since unlocked the offices but have made no arrests yet.

The group justifies their actions, saying it is a retaliation to what they went through when the NDC came to power in 2008 but has denied looting the offices or assault any individual.

Reprisal attacks on supporters of the NDC have been on the rise ever since the New Patriotic Party the December 2016.

The NDC in a statement has threatened to respond if the attacks do not stop.
