A policeman stationed at Sawla in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District of the Northern Region has been issued a two-day ultimatum to leave the town or have himself to blame.
According to residents of the area, tension is mounting in the town with a section of the youth loyal to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Constituency executive, Adamu Sakara S.K threatening to beat the cop to pulp if he fails to vacate the town within the stipulated period.
His crime is that he was caught sleeping with the wife of the NPP official on Wednesday.
Mr. SK who had been tipped his wife was in an amorous sexual relationship with the cop was told the woman had entered the room that morning and forcefully entered the room of the policeman and saw both of them naked.
Unable to stand the scene, he raised an alarm attracting neighbors who rushed into the room to find that the unapologetic cop insisting he had not breached any law in having to unleash his unbridled libido on the woman who it has been established is someone’s wife.
To make matters worse, peers of the policeman handcuffed SK and beat him mercilessly which has triggered the anger of some NPP supporters who armed themselves with life-threatening objects insisting they will not rest until they burn down the police station in the area.
MyNewsGh.com is reporting there is uneasy calm in the area with a reinforcement being deployed from the Police Headquarters in Tamale to contain the heightening tension.
The Sawla/Tuna/Kalba district police commander, ASP O.K Boateng confirmed the attack but described it as “a small skirmish” which did not escalate.
