Tension is mounting at Jacobu in the Amansie Central district of the Ashanti region following the alleged killing of two people by the police last Thursday.

Some residents of Afoako where the incident happened have alleged the two were picked up by the police on Wednesday, August 9, 2023 on the Patasi stretch of the town.

According to the residents who saw bodies, a cartridge was found on one of the deceased whose name has been given as Clinton Amoateng.

“The police saw a cartridge and mercury on Clinton, they suspected he might be hiding a gun somewhere, so they questioned him and asked that he leads them to where he was hiding the gun. We heard a gun shot in the middle of the night. We suspect the police might have pulled the trigger on the suspects,” a resident claiming to be an eyewitness recounted.

Another resident who spoke on GhanaAkoma, Akoma FM’s morning show with Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin, identified one of the deceaseds as an ex-convict.

There is uneasy calm at Jacobu as some irate youth have threatened to avenge the death of Clinton whom they claim to have been unjustifiably killed.
