Police in the Western Region are investigating an attack on the convoy of flagbearer of the Peoples’ National Convention, Hassan Ayariga.

A vehicle that was ahead of Mr. Ayariga’s convoy was shot at about 9:00 pm Friday, at Juaboso in the Western Region.

He told Joy News the attack was targeted at him.

One person who sustained gunshot injuries is currently at the hospital.

“We went to visit the chief and elders of the city and the community. On our way back, they ambushed to attack us.

“The first vehicle came before us. They attacked the first vehicle which refused to stop. They shot through the windscreen and they shot at him, his head and his arm," Ayariga narrated.

"According to the guy who was shot, he said it looked like I was the target,” he narrated.

He is convinced nothing will happen to him with God on his side.

Police have meanwhile begun investigations into the matter.
