A youth group trooped to the Suame police station in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, accusing the police of unjustly killing a colleague.
The Thursday morning seige by the group identified as Seidu Kotoko Boys insisted their colleague, Hamid Lawal is not a criminal.
The police have admitted to shooting the young man during a Wednesady swoop at Amanfrom on the Barekese road.
Joy News’ Erastus Asare Donkor reported, the angry youths want police evidence to justify the shooting. They refused the offer from the police to take the body of their colleague away.
"…is it in the laws of Ghana to just shoot and kill someone? Since yesterday [Wednesday] we wanted to see the evidence but couldn't," one man fumed.
Early on, some members of the rowdy group pounced on a traffic cop but was saved through an intervention by the leaders of the group.
More police officers from the Operation Calm Life and some soldiers have been deployed to the scene and have restored calm.
