The 23 persons who were picked up by the police on Thursday, May 11, following the shooting incident at Taifa-Burkina in Accra have been screened and released by the Kwabenya police.

They are to report on Monday May 15. Two males died during the incident following a misunderstanding over a woman named Hajia who owns a boutique in the area.

The police subsequently picked up a 26-year-old suspect in connection with the shooting and some 23 others in relation to a mob attack which led to the second death.

An eyewitness, who only gave his name as Ben, told Accra News’ Ama Brako Ampofo that he saw a mob chasing after two men, one of whom was holding a pump action gun.

According to him, the one with the gun entered a house but turned his gun on a guy who followed him, killing him instantly.

A mob, realising the assailant had shot and killed someone, turned on him and butchered him.

Class News’ Desmond Kofi Decker reported that police also arrested a rasta man who they suspected to have played a role in the disturbances.
