Posted On


The conflict within the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Walewale Constituency has escalated, as supporters of Hajia Lariba Abudu, the incumbent MP and former Gender Minister, clashed with supporters of Dr. Tia Abudu Kabiru.


The altercation took place in the studios of Eagle FM 94.1MHz in Walewale. This incident follows the January 27 parliamentary primary, where Dr. Kabiru narrowly defeated Hajia Lariba Abudu with 145 votes to her 138 votes.

Hajia Lariba Abudu contested the election results at the Tamale High Court, leading the NPP to seek an out-of-court settlement. Justice Richard Kogyapwah granted the party six weeks to resolve the issue outside the court.

A video circulating on social media shows supporters of both leaders exchanging blows at the radio station. According to, the clash began when supporters of Dr. Kabiru were discussing the election matter on air.

Musah, the son of the NPP North East Regional Council of Elders chairman, led a group of Hajia Lariba’s supporters into the studio and attacked a resident, Haadi, known as Yaagsim.

This prompted other youth monitoring the situation to rush to the station, but Musah had left by the time they arrived.

The unresolved court issue has become a hot topic in Walewale, highlighting the party’s struggle to manage the situation peacefully. The ongoing tension reflects deeper issues within the NPP in the region.
