My life is in danger – Odike cries as armed thugs ransack his office
Akwasi Addai alias Odike, the Founder and Leader of the United Progressive Party, has stated that his life is in danger following an attack on him by unidentified thugs.
The businessman-turned-politician was attacked by unidentified assailants at his office in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, on Monday, amid gunfire.
Nobody was injured by the gunshot, but a handful of his employees were physically attacked and had minor injuries.
The incident came three days after the Asanteman Traditional Council prohibited Odike from accessing the palace during an emergency meeting conducted at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi on August 19, 2022, after he accused several Ashanti chiefs of unlawful mining [Galamsey].
As a result, a ram was sacrificed to avenge the businessman’s ancestral curses.
Speaking on his attack on Kasapa News, Akwasi Addai Odike, who went into hiding when the thugs stormed his office, said his life is in danger.
They could not spot me, otherwise I would have belonged to the silent world by now.
He said he filed a report with the police following which the police visited the crime scene for preliminary investigation.
