An alleged chaotic scuffle between some police officers and residents of  Wassa Akropong in the Wassa Amenfi East municipality of the Western Region has resulted in the death of one person. 

The incident reportedly happened in the late hours of Thursday, February 22, 2024.

According to sources, the incident happened when the police patrol, due to recent robbery attacks, pursued two young men, one identified as Kofi, who was carrying a bag with its contents unknown.

The young men took to their heels upon seeing the police pursuing them.

The police, in an attempt to apprehend them, fired a gun, which hit Kofi’s waist.

When news of the incident and the arrest of the other young man spread across the town, it angered the residents, resulting in a reprisal attack on the police. This resulted in injuries.

However, calm was restored by some police reinforcement.

It is reported that the Kofi was sent to the Wassa Akropong Government Hospital; however, due to the severity of the gun wound, he has been referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi.

With some others receiving treatment for minor injuries sustained, however, no arrests have been made yet.

According to reports, the Western Regional Police Commander and the Municipal Chief Executive, Fredrick Korankye, have both visited the town to calm tensions.
