Supporters of the governing National Democratic Congress undertaking a walk, allegedly veered off to Mr. Akufo-Addo's Nima residence and tried to enter the house but met resistance from security men.
Police officers from the Nima police station which is a block away from the residence of the opposition politician intervened to ward off the attack.
Joy News' Beatrice Adu who reported from the residence says the police have called for reinforcement.
Supporters of the New Patriotic Party have started gathering at the Nima residence of the flagbearer of their party.
Beatrice reported that some of the NPP supporters booed the police for looking on whilst the NDC supporters defaced posters of the NPP Presidential candidate on the wall of the house.
One NDC supporter told Beatrice there were gun shots in the ensuing confusion.
