Ex-Minister Attacks NPP Man

Betty Bosumtwi-SamA former deputy minister for Western Region, Betty Bosumtwi-Sam did the unthinkable when she allegedly attacked an activist of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in Takoradi, Ekow Appiah, for attending the burial service of late President John Atta Mills, organized by the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly at the Takoradi Jubilee Park last Friday.

An eyewitness, who divulged this information to Daily Guide said that Madam Betty could not fathom why the NPP man, who had allegedly been criticizing the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the late President on various radio stations in the Sekondi-Takoradi metropolis, should be at the funeral to mourn the late President.

A source at the park noted that but for the timely intervention of the police who were present at the burial service, the alleged attack on the NPP man by the ex-deputy regional minister, would have created a scene and marred the burial service at the park.

In an interview with Daily Guide, the victim, Ekow Appiah confirmed the attack on him by the former deputy regional minister last Friday when he attended the burial service at the Jubilee Park last Friday.

He explained that since the NPP in the Western Region was invited to the burial service, he decided to join some of his party members and executives to the Jubilee Park on that fateful day to mourn the late President.

He said that after filing past a portrait of the late president placed at the middle of the park, and he was going to take his seat, someone called him and said Madam Betty Sam wanted to see him.

“When I got to where Madam Betty Sam was sitting, the former deputy minister asked my mission at the place because I had been insulting her and the late president on radio and more so, it was an NDC funeral.

“She then stood up, held me by the scruff of the neck and started shaking me violently for no apparent reason”, Mr. Appiah alleged.

He mentioned that in the process, one of the ladies, sitting near the former deputy regional minister, hit him in the face with her hand.

He pointed out that when the police personnel providing security at the burial service were notified of what was happening, the peace officers quickly intervened and whisked him away to a safer place.

Another NPP activist in Sekondi, popularly called ‘Sampson K’, who claimed he was present when the alleged nasty incident happened, corroborated the story and said he was even one of those who notified the police about what was happening.

When contacted, Madam Betty Sam noted that she never attacked Ekow Appiah but rather called the NPP activist to order.

She explained that in the course of the solemn burial service, she saw Mr. Appiah dancing and misbehaving at the service so she asked someone to call him for her.

“In fact I even did not know he was the Ekow Appiah I have been hearing on radio but it was after I have sent for him that someone told me he was Ekow Appiah so I asked him to stop misbehaving because there were some dignitaries around”, the former deputy regional minister alleged.

She, however, indicated that she did not like the way Ekow Appiah had been insulting and criticizing her and the NDC on radio and blamed the media for giving him the chance to insult NDC members daily.

She continued: “Since Daily Guide office is not the police station, Ekow Appiah should report me to the police if he says I have attacked him”.
