A man has been shot after he attempted to snatch a ballot box while EC officials were counting votes at Awutu Senya West Constituency.

Speaking on JoyNews, correspondent Kofi Adjei said the victim had gone to the polling station with some others.

The men who were intimidating EC officials destroyed chairs when they first got to the polling station.

The reporter told Evans Mensah that a policeman, who had been stationed in the area, fired a shot when the men attempted to make away with the ballot boxes.

The bullet hit one of the perpetrators and was transferred to hospital after sustaining injuries from the gunshot.

Meanwhile, his accomplices have been arrested and police have begun their investigation, he added.

Kofi Adjei explained that it is not yet known which party these men attempted to help by snatching the ballot boxes.

However, the police have promised to brief the media after interrogating and investigating the issue.

This news comes hours after two persons sustained injuries in the Awutu Senya East constituency after some group of men opened fire on them.
