The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has given an ultimatum to the government to compensate victims of the Ayawaso West Wuogon violence.
Failure to do this, they have threatened to "collaborate with the affected persons and take all necessary steps to seek appropriate compensation for them.”
