One person sustained a head injury following a clash between sympathisers of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Deme, a border town at Dzodze in the Ketu North Constituency.

Mr Redeemer Dedzo, Volta Regional Police Commander told the Ghana News Agency that the clash occurred when some sympathisers of the NPP tried to physically prevent voters in the border community from coming to vote.

He said in the process of preventing the voters, a scuffle ensued between them and sympathisers of the NDC, during which one Xorla Ahiablame was hit on the forehead with a club.

The Regional Commander said the victim was receiving treatment at the Saint Anthony Hospital at Dzodze.

He said the situation was under control and called for calm.

Mr Dedzoe asked the political parties to allow the institutions to work for free, fair and transparent polls.

Some unconfirmed reports say somebody was shot in the arm in the same town.
