Plausible sources told Today that Mr. Hammond is not the only victim of Richard Nii Armah, adding that the suspect in question has been maiming and brutalising innocent people in those areas.
The sources mentioned that Richard Nii Armah sometime early this year subjected his parents together with his elder sister and younger brothers to severe beatings. And that case, the sources disclosed, is currently before the James Town District Police Station in Accra.
The victim who is a great-great grandson of the late Ga Mantse, King Tackie Tawiah, Today understands, is currently responding to treatment at the Ridge Hospital in Accra, after surviving a deep cut on his ribs.
Speaking in an interview with Today, the family members of Mr. Hammond from the Abola Piam family indicated that the attack had something to do with the protracted Ga chieftaincy dispute.
According to the family members, who pleaded to speak on condition of anonymity, the victim, before the attack on his life, had received countless death threats on his phone from the other faction in the Ga chieftaincy dispute.
The victim, Today further discovered, was a key witness in the Ga chieftaincy dispute at the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs in Dodowa.
“Mr. Hammond has a huge bandage on his ribs; he can speak but with a lot of difficulty. However, doctors are monitoring him very closely," the family members told Today.
