All injured in Ayawaso West Wuogon shootings discharged

All persons injured in the disturbances during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election have been treated and discharged, 3news.com can confirm.

In all, 18 persons were hospitalized at the University Hospital, Legon.

There were earlier reports that only six persons were injured.

But speaking to 3news.com’s Adwoa Adobea on Thursday, administrator at Univeristy Hospital Eric Gaisie said all the persons have been treated and discharged.

The fate of others admitted at the 37 Military Hospital are yet to be known.

The Ghana Police Service had rejected media reports that two people died as a result of the violence.

During the elections, the home of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate Delali Kwasi Brempong was besieged by operatives of the national security.

This led to the exchange of gun shots.

Another incident at the La Bawaleshie Presbyterian Basic 1 School led to the disruption of the exercise.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante-Apeatu, has since called for immediate investigations into the incident.
