The 10th Youth and Women Conference of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) which took place at the University of Cape Coast was reportedly halted after confusion over alleged interference in the election of the party’s women and youth executives.
A viral video sighted by Zylofongh.net showed a clash that allegedly happened between factions of the incumbent National Youth Organiser of the party and his challenger Yaw Brogya Genfi.

Gunshots could also be heard at some point. One person could be seen lying helpless on the ground.
An onlooker was also heard saying, “the person is dying oh!”. While another questioned, “What are the police here for”?
One of the macho men seemingly attacked the person who was taking the video. The videographer then run towards where some personnel of the Ghana Police Service stood for safety.
“Gentleman, I have been telling you to stop, you were there I told you to stop (videoing). They will kill you. You were doing it, I have been warning you, stop and come. These people, they will kill you oh,” one of the policemen could be heard saying.
It is alleged that one person died as a result of the clash and another person sustained stab wounds.
