Police declare 16 wanted for shooting at NDC Youth congress

The Ghana Police Service has declared 16 people wanted following violent disturbances at the 10th National Youth and Women’s Congress of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) held at Cape Coast in the Central Region on Saturday, December 10.

According to the police, while proceedings were ongoing at the Congress, two rival groups violently clashed throwing stones, blocks, sticks, clubs, chairs among others, causing injury to three persons and destruction to property.

The intervention of the police brought the situation under control for the processes to continue to the end without any further incident.

“After an initial review of Police-specific video footages of the event, 16 suspects have so far been identified as some of the people involved in the violence and have been declared wanted,” the police said in a statement on Sunday, December 11.

A GH¢10,000 reward has been set aside for any member of the public who can provide credible information to the police that can lead to the arrest of any of the suspects.
