Mr. Salia Robert, one of the only two aspirants, was killed when he was returning to Wa after campaigning.
“We don’t want to apportion blame for now. We believe the police will do a great work to unravel the cause of his death,” Peter K Dery said.
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has been deposited at the Upper West regional hospital morgue pending Police investigations.
In a related development, the Supreme Court has directed the Electoral Commission [EC] to call off the much publicized District Assembly elections scheduled for March 3, 2015.
The EC was dragged to court by an aspiring Assemblyman, Benjamin Eyi Mensah, represented by Lawyer Alex Afenyo Markin.
According to Eyi Mensah, a fisherman, he was denied an opportunity to file his nomination despite meeting all conditions to contest, but the EC closed nominations before the maturation of the Constitutional Instrument (CI) 85.
