Several sources disclosed to Luv FM’s Erastus Asare Donkor that the personnel from the Formed Police Unit and Counter-Terrorism Unit stationed with the Newmont Company had an altercation with a motor rider during which one person was gunned down.

His death sparked a revolt by the youth, leading to four more people being shot. The youth then besieged a bridge between Kenyase No.2 and Ntotroso road in protest.
