The Police in the Bono Region have arrested three individuals following violent clashes at Nkrankwanta in the Dormaa West Constituency.
The three whose identities have not been revealed are currently in the customer of the Dormaa Divisional Police.
According to the Bono Regional Police Public Relations Officer, Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong, the arrest follows the confusion which claimed one life.
“I can speak on authority that the security situation at Nkrankwanta is relatively calm and I want to place in record that residents are not fighting among themselves. The confusion was orchestrated by the two leading political parties, that is the NDC and the NPP following the death of Kofi Labet but I can tell you there is calm and the people are going about their normal activites.”
On Saturday clashes between some supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) resulted in the death of one person.
The confusion erupted during the mop-up voter’s registration exercise leading to the firing of gunshots which allegedly killed one person and injured two other persons.
Vehicles and motorbikes are also set ablaze in the heat of the confusion.
