A second-year student at Christian Service University, Nana Boakye, suffered a head injury after being allegedly assaulted by supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Kumasi. The incident occurred during a public lecture marking the school’s 50th anniversary, where former President and 2024 NDC flagbearer, John Mahama, spoke.

During his speech, Mahama criticized his NPP opponent, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, calling his campaign a “concert party.” While many in the audience applauded, Nana Boakye, a member of the NPP’s student wing, TESCON, was unhappy and retorted, “Mahama, you’re lying, you will lose.”

An NDC supporter confronted Boakye and slapped him in front of the former President. As Boakye was leaving the auditorium, he was attacked again, resulting in injuries to his head and arm.
Despite attempts to rescue him, some irate party members broke into an office where Boakye was being kept. The NPP in the Ashanti Region expressed disappointment over the incident. Boakye has not yet filed a complaint with the police.
