Mysterious Coffin Found At Nkoranza Municipal Electoral Commission Office
These are photos of the mysterious coffin found at Nkoranza Municipal Electoral Commission Office on Friday, March 7, in the morning. It’s understood fear and panic gripped the workers when they reported for work only to see to scary sight of the empty coffin which was placed at the entrance of the office.
Placed on top of the coffin was a conspicuous dead fowl alongside eggs and a red cloth. It’s gathered that the coffin could be in response to EC’s resolve to conduct the District Assembly Elections in the area.
According to Citi News, the Regional Director of the EC, George Gyabaa, the scheduled elections will be conducted on Tuesday [11th April, 2017] as all the necessary materials have been dispatched to the communities. He appealed to residents and aspiring candidates to conduct themselves peacefully during the polls to enable the two assemblies to have representatives to stir the affairs of the assembly for development. He said:
“District Level Elections is electoral area and district specific. All their development projects have stale because they do not have an assembly, so it’s incumbent for them to elect assembly members so they can form the assemblies to facilitate development”.
George Gyabaa also added that his outfit had also trained officers to in readiness to execute their mandate. Following the resident’s failure to participate in the elections conducted by the EC last year, in protest against the DKM and other micro-finance scams that rocked the area, Nkoranza North and South do not have functional assemblies. They invoked curses and banned all political activities in the area to force authorities into getting the companies who defrauded them to refund their investments.
Only days ago, a purification exercise led by fetish priest, Nana Kwabena Nyarko and some youths was carried out to reverse the curse that was invoked on the Municipal Electoral Commission (EC), compelling it to suspend the District Level Assembly Election in Nkoranza North and South Districts.
