…William Baah was also polling agent for NPP in 2016
The Assemblyman for Diaso in the Upper Denkyira District, who mobilized the youth of the area to lynch Capt. Maxwell Mahama, is a serving executive of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
William Baah is the NPP’s current Branch Secretary for Diaso and is said to be known to be very rowdy in the cause of his beloved NPP.
According to information that has emerged, the Assemblyman is so passionately involved with the NPP in that area that he was, very recently, a polling agent for the ruling party in the 2016 elections which had been declared as an “all-die-be-die” affair by the party’s then candidate, and current President, Nana Akufo-Addo.
William Baah is currently in the news for mobilizing youth of Diaso to lynch an army Officer, Capt. Maxwell Mahama of the 5th Infantry Battalion (5BN).
The soldier had been set upon by Mr. Baah’s mob and bludgeoned to death with sticks and stones after which his body had been burnt.
After the dastardly act, Mr. Baah had initially spawned a cover story that the murdered soldier had been an armed robber, but as evidence added up, it emerged that the NPP man is an illegal miner and had enough motive to murder the soldier.
This is because Capt. Mahama was the leader of a military detachment to fight illegal mining in the area.
The Assemblyman soon bolted into hiding. In his absence, it was discovered that he also nursed offensive weapons, including guns, in his home.
With the growing gravity of findings against him, William Baah was soon constrained to emerge from the shadows and hand himself over to the police
It is as he is in the custody of the police that evidence has emerged that he is a serving executive member of the NPP.
Interestingly, Denkyira Boase, the scene of the dastardly lynching of the late soldier, is a stronghold of the NPP and close to the Assin area which is inclusive of the Assin Central constituency, represented in Parliament by Kennedy Agyapong.
Ken Agyapong, a known wild character of the NPP, had declared in the buildup to the 2016 elections that the NPP would lynch soldiers because he believed personnel from the Military had plans to rig the elections for the then ruling National Democratic Congress.
As part of his mean streak, Ken Agyapong is on record to have also declared mass murder against Gas and Ewes in the Ashanti Region and war in Ghana.
The discovery of William Baah’s deep involvement with the NPP comes at a time when members of Delta Force, a goon squad of the ruling party, had overthrown court proceedings and freed members of their group facing trial with the state going through the motions to sweep the case under the carpet.
The Attorney General’s Department has claimed that there is no evidence to form the basis of the prosecution of Delta Force even though the violent overthrow of the court proceedings had been caught on camera and had been witnessed by a judge of the court where the incident took place, Mary Nsenkyire.
Poignantly, the Attorney General’s file of nolle prosequi in the Delta Force case had come after Ken Agyapong had gone on radio to threaten to organize a demonstration against his own government if members of the goon squad were prosecuted.
Delta Force, had prior to overthrowing the court proceedings, pounced on the Ashanti regional Coordinator for National Security, George Agyei, beating him and hounding him out of his office.
