One person has so far been arrested in connection with the acid attack on the Upper East regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Adams Mohammed.
The chairman was attacked by two unidentified men Wednesday night.
He was returning from his construction site late in the night when the two unknown men stopped him.
They immediately poured acid on him while in his vehicle close to his residence, the Upper East regional police command confirmed to Starrfmonline.com.
“The seats of his pick-up have all been torn by the acid. He was showered with the acid, from the head through the face to the body and all parts,” Public Relations Officer of the Upper East Regional Police ASP Thomas Agbanyo stated.

According to his aide Zakaria Osman, his boss is battling for his life because the corrosive substance has damaged his face.
