Calm has returned to the Banda Constituency in the Bono Region following a confrontation at a registration centre that resulted in the death of one person.

This is according to the Bono Regional Police Command which says the presence of security personnel has been beefed up on the ground.

The scuffle reportedly began after some persons associated with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for the constituency allegedly confronted brother of the MP for the area, Ahmed Ibrahim, over reasons not yet known.

Bono Regional Police PRO, Chief Inspector Augustine Kingsley Oppong said police are gathering evidence and will soon make an arrest.

“We are gathering intelligence that will lead us to the right culprits so that we will not go and arrest some people and later release them. There is reinforcement there, and now the situation is under control for now. People are moving to and fro for their own business. Police, military and immigration are on the ground.”

One killed

One person has been killed in Banda in the Bono region over a confrontation at a registration centre.

The scuffle at the registration center began after some persons associated with the NPP parliamentary candidate for the constituency confronted brother of the MP for the area, Ahmed Ibrahim, over reasons not yet known.

The deceased, according to the MP, was a teacher training graduate who was returning to the area to inform his parent of his completion of studies.

Information available to Star News indicates that shortly after the registration centre incident, the persons went to the house of the brother of the MP at Tabie. The incident reportedly triggered anger among residents of Tabie who mounted roadblocks in an attempt to avenge the attack.
