“When the incident happened, we could not go to the place immediately because access to the place is difficult. We will go there today [Friday] to assess the extent of damage done,” he explained.
Mr. Emmanuel Twumasi Ankrah stated that no casualties have been recorded from the latest incident.
On Wednesday, five people were gunned down in Tuobodom and several others injured in what many residents say was as a result of a prolonged chieftaincy dispute in the town.
