Kintampo violence: B/A Police declares youth secretary wanted

The Brong Ahafo Regional Police command has declared wanted the Secretary for Dega Land Association who doubles as the Secretary for the Mo Youth Association, Richard Kwaku Busih for masterminding the disturbances recorded in Kintampo Municipality in the Bono East Region.

Public Relations Officer for the Brong Ahafo Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service, Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong in an interview on “Ark Mantam yi mu Kasaebo” noted that this will help resolve the ongoing impasse in the area.

This comes after the one person was on Tuesday shot dead while 10 others were arrested with several others sustaining various degrees of injuries after the Delga Land Association and Mo Youth association in Kintampo North besieged the Divisional Police Station demanding the release of seven persons arrested by the police earlier.

Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong in an earlier interview explained that, the deceased was shot dead after he stabbed one of the military personnel who were controlling the crowd and later attempted to snatch his riffle. 

But in a rebuttal, Secretary to the association described the actions of the security personnel as unprofessional and later accused the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Kintampo, Micheal Sarkodie Baffoe of inciting the Nana Addo’s led government against the Mo tribe in Kintampo.

“The Security personnel came and began firing into the crowd which wasn’t the best. We have a professional way of controlling the crowd instead of what they did as if they were firing to kill animals this isn’t fair” he said in grief.

Touching on charges against the 10 arrested suspects, the PRO, Mr Oppong noted that they are been charged for murder, causing harm and damage.

Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong further called on residents in the Region to desist from embarking on any activity which will affect the peace of the Region adding that the service will not relent of their effort in applying the laws of the country on any one found comparable.

He however appealed to the general public to assist the police with any information leading to the arrest of the Bushi.
