Vociferous New Patriotic Member of Parliament for Assin Central , Kennedy Agyapong, has justified the alleged assault on the Member of Parliament for Manhyia North, Collins Amankwa, and a secretary to the party in that constituency, Felix Ibrahim at Krofrom in Kumasi.
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Bernard Antwi Bosiako, also known as Chairman Wontumi is in the grips of the Ashanti Regional Police Command for allegedly assaulting the two.

He added that Wontumi should have beaten the MP the more for acting irresponsibly.
“Chairman Wontumi is a very fantastic chairman. He’s done very well …I will support Wontumi anytime. He should have beaten him more than he did. They are always playing the fool. I really believe in him and that is the kind of Chairman that we need.”
“If you are a sitting MP and you misbehave we will beat you .I am sick and tired of these people,” he said.
Wontumi granted bail
Meanwhile the Ashanti Regional Chairman, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, has been granted bail in the sum of GHc 20,000 with two sureties.
The case of assault brought against him has thus been adjourned to June 1.
