Security personnel at the Techiman South collation center during the December 7 general election had a tough time controlling daredevil supporters of both the governing New Patriotic Party and the opposition National Democratic Congress.
The result of the parliamentary election there has been in dispute as candidates of both the NPP and the NDC claimed to have won, while alleging irregularities with the process.
Reports from that part of the Bono East region of Ghana showed violent scenes during the collation process and it got worse when the returning officer was about to announce the result and the winner of the parliamentary election.
A video in circulation shows how overexcited party supporters clashed with police and military officers as they tried to prevent the returning officer from performing his duty.

Meanwhile, some top-notch lawyers and senior party officials of the National Democratic Congress have kickstarted evidence gathering to prove their claim that the December 7 2020 election was rigged for the governing New Patriotic Party and its candidate Nana Akufo-Addo.
