Twenty three (23) victims of the Ayawaso-West Wuogon Constituency by-election violence have sued government over what they describe as violations of their fundamental human rights.

The victims are seeking among other reliefs, a total of GH₵5.75 million as compensation for the injuries sustained as a result of the violence which erupted.

Each applicant is seeking GH₵250,000 as compensation.

The applicants alleged the National Security team deployed to the by-election assaulted, arrested and detained them leading to all forms of injuries, even though that claim is yet to be fully substantiated.

The by-election which was held on January 31, 2019 was marred by a shooting incident at the residence of Kwasi Delali Brempong, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate, which resulted in injuries to 18 persons and an assault on an observer at one of the polling stations.

At the La Bawaleshie School Park, the NDC MP for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, who was observing the elections, was allegedly assaulted by some unidentified persons.

The incident also resulted in the opposition party directing its agents to withdraw from the various polling stations.
