The Greater Accra Regional Police Command has arrested nine persons said to have been involved in a shooting incident at Madagbeh, a in the Ada West District.
The police arrested theses nine persons after an investigation was carried out by the Sege Police after the shooting. Report indicates that, eleven persons have sustained injuries and four out of the total were in critical condition at the Ada East District Hospital.
Police Commander, DSP George Aboagye during an interview with JoyNews monitored by TRUST NEWS said investigations are still on going to ensure the perpetrators are brought to book.
“We can never sit down for people to put the laws into their hands and do anything, anyhow. We went there on Friday to identify those who did such acts. It wasn’t easy but we were able to arrest nine people,” he said.
Eyewitness also shared exactly what they saw and actually happened. ”masked macho men in pickups, threatened to kill them in the village for killing and dumping their colleague in the bush.
“One of them said we are fools for working against MacDan’s take over of the Songor Lagoon.”
However, Assemblymember for the area, James Tsiani Gadugah has called on government to settle unresolved issues surrounding Valco Salt and Songor Lagoon which may have led to the shooting incident.
“If the government has handed over Valco salt to an investor, I don’t think Songor Lagoon is part of it. The person has to work solely with Valco and not Songor itself,” he said.
