The Eastern Region Police Command has arrested two persons in connection with the shooting incident at Asunafo in the Kwabeng District of the Eastern Region.

The infamous incident led to the death while eight others sustained various degrees of injuries last Friday.

Confirming the arrest, the Regional Police PRO revealed that preliminary investigation established that the shooting occurred during a community clash between two factions over a mining activity in the town.

DSP Ebenezer Tetteh said nine people were shot during the event and brought to the Enyirensi Government Hospital, where one person died shortly after arriving.

He further urged the public to volunteer reliable information to assist the police arrest, other culprits on the run.

“We want to assure those persons who will be giving us such information that it will be treated with the utmost confidentiality,” he said.

“We are also going to ensure that persons who are linked to these disturbances are taken through the due process of the law, and the law is made to punish them, so it will serve as a deterrent to other people who will try to take the law into their own hands,” DSP Ebenezer Tetteh added.
