The former Member of Parliament for Ejura-Sekyedumase, Hon. Mohammed Yussif Pangabu was attacked and nearly lynched by ‘phalanges’ of thugs allegedly sent by the Metropolitan Chief Executive of the area, Alhaji Muhammad Bawah Braimah.
His new Tundra vehicle was touched but his life was rescued by Hon. Sualisu Bamba, the Member of Parliament for the constituency.
The event started at a naming ceremony where both had attended separately with their followers.
According to Pangabu who traded unprintable words with the MCE on Kessben FM, the MCE got jealously infuriated at the amount he donated at the ceremony and sicced his ‘Boys’ after him.
“Because of the money I gave. I donated GH500 and he[MCE] donated GH100, he knows I have the majority so he intentionally asked his boys to distract the event”.
The thugs attacked him and his entourage on their way from the ceremony but he has to run hard for his life to the incumbent MP, whose residence was close to the location of the attack.
“The MCE fling stones at my vehicle and ordered his boys after me”, he charged on KessbenFm.
The Former MP also accused the NDC Party of indifference by rejecting him in his illness.
He claimed none of the party’s executive has visited him since he returned from treatment and for this reason he believes the party including the MCE wishes him dead.
However, the MCE denied the allegations saying the former MP is only being ungrateful. Hon. Bawah said he is transfixed by the attempts of Hon. Pangabu to always engage in war of nerves on a least platform.
“Pangabu, if he says he is Muslim, if he performs Salat, if he reads the Qur’an and prostrate before Allah, if I threw a stone at his vehicle or said something to him as he claimed, I leave him to Allah, I leave him with the Kabba that we prostrate before. Allah would judge the two of us.”
“Pangabu is not God, If they have pulled a gun at me because of Pangabu, then all his evil thought shall return against him”, he cursed.
The Former MP has been adamantly unbalanced after loosing the 2012 parliamentary election.
He claims strongly that he holds video and audio records that show the MCE, then the Ashanti regional deputy organiser and municipal NADMO Coordinator played a lead role in his defeat.
He alleged that, Hon. Bawah campaign against him by telling electorates to vote skirt and blouse a message which he believed caused his failure.
Since then, these party men and their supporters have engaged in violent exchanges, at some point exhibiting lawlessness.
Attempts by high powered delegation within and without the NDC to broker truce among them has yield zilch result.
The former MP offered that the only way to overture is to also campaign against the MCE who hinted plans to run the parliamentary race on the ticket of the NDC in 2016.
The MCE has been flayed by the public for financial misappropriation and vote- buying induced projects.
Last year, it was reported that he bloated the Internal Generated Fund(IGF) that was accounted for Donations. There were reports also on ghost projects.
