The Police Stations were invaded by an angry group of protesters on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, who attacked the facilities with all kinds of deadly weapons.
The mob was purportedly protesting the death of Albert Donkor, an armed robbery suspect who was killed by police during an anti-robbery operation.
To restore peace and order, police responded accordingly, including bringing reinforcement units from the Regional Headquarters and neighboring regions.
Six suspects in police custody escaped during the incident, and extensive efforts are being made to apprehend them.
Six people were injured as a result of the incident and were sent to St. Theresa’s Hospital in Nkoranza. According to hospital officials, one of them died while receiving care, while five others are presently being treated.
