The police have arrested two persons in connection with a suspected land dispute at Dzorwulu, Accra.
The two are said to have allegedly orgainsed some thugs with an excavator to demolish a four-bedroom apartment in the area on Monday, October 24.
Together with their accomplices, the suspects also attacked occupants of the house even before demolishing it – the police gathered.
“The police responded to the scene to restore calm. Police later had information that one of the vehicles belonging to the suspects had run into a ditch and was attacked by a mob who pelted them with stones, injured one of the suspects, James Quainoo, and set his car ablaze,” the police said in Facebook post.
The injured suspect is at the hospital receiving medical attention, while efforts are underway to arrest all the other perpetrators to face justice.
So far, the police has confirmed that no person was shot during the incident.
However, “investigation continues and all available footages on the incident are being reviewed as part of the investigation process.”
In an earlier notice, the police said its officers had restored calm to the area.
“The Police are in control of the situation and calm has since been restored,” the statement said.
“We, therefore, wish to urge the public to remain calm. Further developments will be shared in due course.”
There is an amateur video showing individuals running away from a Black Toyota Land Cruiser v8 vehicle.
In the said video is a motionless man lying less than 20 metres from the vehicle which is on the left side of the road and has its left front part stuck in a gutter.
The motionless individual is seen bleeding from the head region and there is a slight move of his left hand at some point in the video.
The vehicle was burning and one person could be heard saying, “the person is not dead and I need an ambulance.”
The video posted mainly on Instagram comes with the caption, ‘shooting inident at Dzorwulu, driver shot.’
