Founder and Leader of the United Progressive Party (UPP), Akwasi Addai ‘Odike’ has given the press detailed information on how gun-wielding men stormed his office to harm him.
Armed men were said to have attacked ‘Odike’ in his office at Patase, Kumasi. They vandalized cars parked in front of the office while shooting randomly.
A member of Odike’s team, Francis, claims the gunmen ordered staff in the office to lie down, assaulted them physically and ransacked the office at about 4:30 pm on Monday, shooting randomly.
The attack came after Odike passed a comment on the role of chiefs in illegal mining. His words were described as distasteful and he incurred the wrath of Manhyia Palace in Kumasi.
Speaking to the press on Monday, the former presidential aspirant declared his readiness to face off with the chiefs of Kumasi.
He claimed to be unfazed by the attack on his office on Monday although he fears for his life and announced his readiness to engage them in a battle.
“Physically yes. I am traumatized. But God is with me.”
Odike also refused to apologize for his comment about the chiefs.
“People, who are after my life, how can I apologize to them? They want to kill me so why should I go on my knees and beg them? That portion is past and gone. No reconciliation. The battle lines have been drawn. I have to take good care of myself and see how the Police will assist me in terms of security” he said.
