New Patriotic Party (NPP) National Chairman Paul Afoko says his junior brother is not responsible for the acid attack that led to the death of Upper East regional Chairman, Adam Mahama.

His brother, Gregory who is also an ex-convict is in the grips of the police following his suspected involvement in Adama Mahama’s death Thursday morning.

Adam Mahama died in the hospital after an acid attack by two assailants Wednesday midnight.

But Paul Afoko speaking on Adom FM’s morning show ‘Dwaso Nsem’ Thursday, says his checks reveal that his junior brother was fast asleep at home during the midnight acid attack.

He condemned the attacks and stressed that he does not support violence in any form.

An aide to the late chairman Usman Zakaria said the deceased chairman, before he was sent to the hospital, named the younger brother of Paul Afoko as one of the attackers.

According to him, Paul Afoko’s brother undertook the gruesome act with one Asagba who is also said to be a member of the NPP.

“He named him, the younger brother of Afoko and Afakpa as the persons and indicated further that if he dies, we should burry him in his village and also take care of his children…,” he said.

He added that Paul Afoko's younger brother has formed a group to protect him anytime he visits the Upper East region.
