The campaign team of a former member of Parliament for the Zebilla East constituency in the Upper East region, Cletus Apul Avoka, has been attacked by armed robbers.

The attack, according to Mr Avoka who is seeking re-election told Starr Midday News that the incident happened Thursday night at about 10:30 pm at Abuskologa when the team was returning from a tour of Gore, Tetako, Adagbera and Azuwera polling stations.

Narrating the incident, Mr Avoka said an advanced team was stopped by some gun-wielding men in Police uniforms at a check point only to find out that the men were armed robbers and not policemen.

Mr Avoka added that the robbers made away with one of the team members’ motorcycle, mobile phones and an undisclosed amount of money.
