Some irate youth of Asawase have attacked the Asawase police station in retaliation to an alleged police brutality.
The youth accused the police of manhandling their friend, leading to his death.
They mobilised themselves, marched to the police station, and pelted stones at the officers around on Sunday evening, July 23, 2023.
Assembly member for Asawase West electoral area, Gideon Okai, confirmed the incident to Akoma FM.
“I heard some noise, and when I came out, I saw a group of young men throwing stones at the police station. So I called the airport police commander to deploy more officers to come and maintain law and order. You can see a lot of damages when you enter the police station. The louvre blades, metre, and other items have been vandalised. The youth are accusing the police of killing their friend, but the police have denied that,” he said.
Calm has returned after a team of police officers were deployed there.
