According to him, no one has so far been arrested in connection with the clashes.

Violence broke at the Nima residence of Nana Addo on Sunday for reasons yet to be made public but according to the NPP, the incident is part of series of activities planned by the NDC.

Some supporters of the NDC undertaking a health walk, allegedly veered off to Nana Addo's Nima residence and tried to enter the house but met resistance from security men.

It is however unclear what triggered the clashes but according to reports, both sides confirmed gunshots and hurling of harmful objects.

But Cephas Arthur in an interview with Accra-based Kasapa FM said, "One of the Security guards of the opposition leader pointed a gun at the Commander of the Counter Terrorism Unit of the Ghana Police Service, fired a warning shot and pointed the gun back at the officer. The Police team attempted to unleash a defensive attack but the Commander ordered them to restrain the attacks and were very professional yesterday."

He said, "Imagine a civilian pointing a gun at the Police; you have called for everything possible, but the Police were very professional. If it were to be the army whose orientation about weapon is a different thing altogether you can imagine what would have happened."

He added that, "I’m sure we would have been telling a different story by now. But amidst this fierce challenge we faced yesterday, there were no casualties recorded. It’s rather disappointing to hear the public blamed the Police."

A statement signed by the Communications Director, Nana Akomea, called on the National Peace Council, the Christian Council, and all Civil Society Organisations to let their voices be heard in condemnation of this violent act.
