One Dead, 5 Injured In Clash With Police At Nkoranza
On Tuesday, May 17th, 2022, another victim was slain in a conflict between irate Nkoranza youth and police.
The kids were seeking justice for Albert Donkor, one of their teammates.
In their quest for justice for Mr. Donkor, the enraged youngsters stopped highways, burned car tires, and then attacked the local police headquarters, destroying police cars and property while law enforcers fired warning shots.
Mr. Donkor was a robbery suspect, according to the police, but residents say he was targeted and killed by the police after witnessing a heist involving a police officer on the Nkoranza-Kintampo route.
Six people were injured during the riots and were sent to St Theresa’s Hospital in Nkoranza.
One of the injured people died while undergoing care, and five more are now undergoing therapy.
In a statement declaring the restoration of peace and order in Nkoranza, the police verified the killing.
