Zionfelix.net can report that the Fomena District Electoral office in the Ashanti Region was gutted by fire early on Tuesday morning after the all-important election and the counting/citation on Monday night.
According to a report we sighted on citinewsroom.com, 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.
Their report adds that the office, which caught fire, is a few meters away from where the results were being collated.
Currently, we can report that firefighters have been to the scene to put out the fire and salvaged whatever they could from the blazed building.
As of the time of this report, the cause of the fire was not yet known but some residents, however, many suspect it is arson and so far people are pointing accusing fingers at the supporters of the NPP candidate as the incident happened shortly after the returning officer for Fomena Constituency declared the election results which did not favor the governing party’s representative.
