The police have arrested two individuals in connection with the disturbances at Dzorwulu in Accra over a disputed land.
The suspects, Nana Owusu Banahene and James Quainoo, allegedly organised thugs with an excavator to demolish a four-bedroom apartment building at Dzorwulu on Monday (24 October 2022).
The police said before the demolition, the suspects and their accomplices attacked the occupants of the house.
“The police responded to the scene to restore calm,” the statement said. “The perpetrators upon seeing the police abandoned the excavator and escaped from the scene.”
“Police later had information that one of the vehicles belonging to the suspects had run into a ditch and was attacked by a mob who pelted them with stones, injured one of the suspects, James Quainoo and set his car ablaze.”
The injured suspect is at the hospital receiving medical attention, the statement added. Investigation has so far revealed that no one was shot during the incident.
“Investigation continues and all available footages on the incident are being reviewed as part of the investigation process. Efforts are underway to arrest all other perpetrators to face justice,” the police said.
