Ningo-Prampram MP, Sam Nartey George, has rejected claims that he provoked some security officials during Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election on 31 January 2019, thus, his assault by those operatives.
Mr George told the Commission of Inquiry probing the gun violence that plagued the by-election at the La-Bawaleshie area that he was assaulted by two separate operatives without provocation.
Mr George, who appeared before the three-member Commission, said on Monday, 25 February 2019 that he only queried an individual involved in the matter about whether he was “a police officer or a party officer?”
He said he did not know why that simple question got him assaulted.
Mr George also refuted claims that he arrived at the polling station with 15 motorbikers during the by-election.
