Police sources reveal that they had also targeted the home of the Member of Parliament(MP)-elect for the area Lawyer Andrew Amoako Asiamah but for the timely intervention of the police in the area.

It is unclear who masterminded this attack but it would be recalled that the Fomena District Electoral Commission offices were gutted by fire a day after the polls.

The fire started shortly after the declaration of the constituency results which confirmed that the dismissed New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament, Andrew Amoako Asiamah, had won the polls as an independent candidate.

The office, which caught fire, is a few meters away from where the results were being collated.

Firefighters were deployed to the scene to douse the blaze.
