Two of the casualties are currently on admission at the District Hospital in Sogakofe while one has been taken to the Comboni Hospital. They are all said to be responding to treatment.

Earlier Monday morning, the residents took to the streets to protest the Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Yao Letsa’s refusal to meet them and address their concerns.

They have been complaining about the increasing spate of armed robbery incidents in the South Tongu District.

They didn’t only block the Sogakofe-Accra highway but also burnt tyres to register their displeasure.

A joint military-police team managed to control and scare away the crowd to restore calm in the town.

Residents of Sogakofe have given the police a three-day ultimatum to arrest a group of armed robbers who shot and killed one of their own or face their wrath.

The residents who are terrified following a series of armed robbery incidents called for an intensified police visibility and patrol to help the curb the increasing spate of crime in the South Tongu District.
