The Bono Regional Police Command has arrested seven persons in connection with the voter registration-related disturbances that led to the death of a 28-year-old teacher trainee graduate at Banda on Monday, July 13.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer (PRO), Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong, who confirmed the arrest to 3news.com said the suspects were arrested upon intelligence gathered by the Command.
He expressed belief that the suspects will assist the police in further investigating the cause of the deadly disturbances.
Chief Inspector Oppong, however, did not disclose the names of the seven arrested persons.
Silas Wulochamey, a graduate of Akim Oda Teacher Training College, was allegedly accosted and stabbed by some men at Banda Kabrono on Monday, July 13 when returning from a visit to his pastor at Wenchi Methodist.
”They would be arraigned before court after the police have established a prima facie evidence against them,” Chief Inspector Oppong said.
“The Police Command would like to assure the public that all the perpetrators of the registration violence and the death of the 28-year-old Silas would be brought to book. We are also appealing to the general public to volunteer information that could assist us in the discharge of our duties. No informant would be exposed,” he assured.
Meanwhile, the Bono Regional Peace Council has condemned violence that led to the death of the teacher trainee graduate.
