The woes of a civilian: Check out the state of a man who suffered gun wound at Ayawaso by-elections

It could be recalled back in the year 2019, when there was a by-election at Ayawaso West wuogon constituency in the Greater Accra Region. The elections took place on the 31st day of January, 2019 after the death of the incumbent, Emmanuel Kwabena Kyerematen Agyarko. The wife of the late MP, Mrs. Lydia Alhassan stood in the ticket of the NPP to contest for the vacant post.

In the process of the voting, a vigilante group parading as National security operatives were seen opening fire into NDC sympathisers. This caused at least six people to sustain serious injures while others are maimed for life. In the same vein, member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram received a 'hot' slap from an officer. The issue got out of hands after that chaotic incident.

Two years down the line, a man who is identified as Yaro was part of the victims who sustained gunshot wound. He had a fracture on the right leg which has made movement very difficult for him. He uses clutches to walk and has become bedridden. The young man is left alone with the wife in the house and life is very difficult for him.

When he was narrating his story, he said due to wound, he is not able to go to anywhere. It is the wife alone who has been taking care of him at home. He also spoke about the kind of excruciating pain he has been going through at night as he is finding it difficult to sleep also. The life of this promising young man has been shattered.
