The management team of the St. Theresa’s Hospital in Nkoranza in the Bono East Region where the mayhem is occurring, says one person confirmed has died, three have been discharged with four still on admission.

This brings the number of casualties to 8 instead of the 6 reported earlier by the Public Affairs Directorate of the Ghana Police Service.

A high-powered delegation from Accra arrived in Nkoranza on Wednesday May 18 following the disturbances in that part of the country.

The delegation is led by COP Tetteh Yehuno.

The delegation has been holding a closed door meeting with the Nkoranza Police personnel at the vandalized Nkoranza District Police station.

Sources within the police says the delegation will also visit the Omanhene of the Nkoranza Traditional Area, Nana Kwame Baffoe, at his private residence.

The Bono East Regional Minister Kwasi Adu Gjan assured that a thorough investigation will be conducted into the death of 27-year-old man Albert Donkor who was reported to have died in Police custody, leading to youth agitations in the area.

He said this matter will not be glossed over because it can happen to anyone.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday May 17, he said “We will not allow any conniving and condoning to this because today, it is Albert Donkor, tomorrow it could be me. I am lucky, I am the minister, I have the police with me, tomorrow what happens if I am no more a minister, anyone of us could be Albert Donkor.

“So, this is not an issue that we, those in authority including the traditional rulers will relent on at all. We assure them to keep calm.”
