The first Vice National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Freddie Blay has been hospitalised in the Upper East region after he was allegedly attacked by some members of pro-NDC group, ?Azorka Boys?.

Freddie BlayStarr FM reporter Ibrahim Alhassan confirmed that Mr. Blay who is on admission at the regional hospital told him in a phone interview that some Azorka boys attacked him and members of his monitoring team without any form of provocation.

He added that the Azorka boys also prevented Mr. Blay and his team from monitoring the ongoing by-election in the constituency.

According to Alhassan, some members of the NPP monitoring team have sustained some injuries and are currently receiving treatment.

About 39,523 registered voters are expected to vote in the by-elections.

Political watchers and pollsters have tipped the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) to recapture the seat it has dominated for over 20 years until the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) snatched it in the 2012 general elections.

The by-election is a straight fight between the NDC?s BT Baba and Thomas Duanab of the NPP. The poll has become necessary following the enskinment of the MP for the area Robert Nachinab Mosore as chief of the Tolon traditional area.
