The Ghana Police Service says it has arrested two suspects in connection with some disturbances at Dzorwulu in Accra over disputed land.
The suspects who have been identified as Nana Owusu Banahene and James Quainoo allegedly organised some thugs with an excavator to demolish a four-bedroom apartment building at Dzorwulu on October 24, 2022.
According to the police, the suspects and their accomplices attacked the occupants of the house before the demolishing.
The police in a social media post said the perpetrators upon seeing the police abandoned the excavator and escaped from the scene.
“Police later had information that one of the vehicles belonging to the suspects had run into a ditch and was attacked by a mob who pelted them with stones, injured one of the suspects, James Quainoo and set his car ablaze.
Police proceeded to the place and the Ghana National Fire Service (GNFS) was called in to help quench the fire.
The injured suspect is at the hospital receiving medical attention (his photograph could not be taken due to his condition).”
Investigations, according to the law enforcement body, have so far revealed that no one was shot during the incident.
The police confirmed the arrest in a Twitter post on Tuesday, October 25, 2022. The Service urged members of the public to assist with investigations while remaining calm.
“Investigation continues and all available footages on the incident are being reviewed as part of the investigation process. Efforts are underway to arrest all other perpetrators to face justice.”
Earlier in a viral video, a man was seen lying in distress on the road while a nearby Toyota Landcruiser with registration number GW 2800 17 was seen ablaze. The unidentified man was seen lying motionless in a puddle of what appeared to be blood around his head.
