A policeman stationed at Sawla in the Sawla-Tuna-Kalba District of the Northern Region has been issued a two-day ultimatum to leave the town or have himself to blame.
According to residents of the area, tension is mounting in the town with a section of the youth loyal to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Constituency Organiser, Adamu Sakara S.K threatening to beat the cop to pulp if he fails to vacate the town within the stipulated period.
His crime is that he was caught sleeping with the wife of the NPP official on Wednesday.
Mr. SK who had been tipped his wife was in an amorous sexual relationship with the cop was told the woman had entered the room that morning and forcefully entered the room of the policeman and saw both of them naked.
To make matters worse, peers of the policeman handcuffed SK and beat him mercilessly which has triggered the anger of some NPP supporters who armed themselves with life-threatening objects insisting they will not rest until they burn down the police station in the area.
MyNewsGh.com learnt there is uneasy calm in the area with a reinforcement being deployed from thPolicece Headquarters in Tamale to contain the heightening tension.
The Sawla/Tuna/Kalba district police commander, ASP O.K Boateng confirmed the attack but described it as “a small skirmish” which did not escalate.
