NDC legislator Sam George on Monday appeared before the Emile Short Commission where he presented 29 bullets casings with one live round of which he claims was from the shooting scene during the By-election at the Ayawaso constituency.
Mr. George appearing at the Commission indicated that the casing were picked and brought to him from the spot where the shooting took place. Ghanacrusader. com saw videos where the legislator was heckled by masked men and wielding guns during the ongoing of the said elections.
Mr George posted on Facebook that he had just been assaulted by members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) militia group “Invisible Forces.” He claims that they were wearing NSC shirts.
Just hours into the by-election, some armed men clothed in National Security apparel stormed the house of the NDC candidate which was behind the La Bawalashie Presby polling station.
As to whether the casings were from the scene, he said “I was there when the National Security-attired men fired and discharged their weapons. I was standing by a red pick-up which has a bullet hole. A casing was picked from there.”
“There was only one direction of shooting and one group of people who shot while I was there; it was the men in Khaki and National Security shirts,” he said.
According to him, the time span between his witness of the shooting and telling those around to get the casings were the casings from the guns by the officers. Also, he said it is untrue that he entered the house of the NDC candidate Delali Kwesi Brempong, which was under surveillance with motor bikers.
The Ningo Prampram MP said he has other video and pictures to share with the Commission.
