Amid rising tensions, the police and military have increased their presence in Nkoranza

Following growing tensions in the neighborhood between some enraged youth and the police, the security presence in Nkoranza has been enhanced. As of Wednesday morning, the entire vicinity had been flooded with police and military men who are ready to prevent any mayhem.

In an interview with Paa Kwesi Schandorf on Wednesday, he stated that, following a youth demonstration on Tuesday, the community's traditional leaders engaged the enraged youth to help calm the situation, resulting in an accord.

Despite the youth's determination to remain peaceful, he claims, they later flooded onto the streets in a furious clash with the police. As a result, despite the massive security presence, he added that it is uncertain what the youth will do next.

"It's a normal day in Nkoranza township, as it is in any other region of the country; the only difference is that there is a heightened Police presence on the main streets of Nkoranza."

You can't forecast the youth, but with the presence of the police and military team here, the issue should be put to rest," he said. "When the Police reinforcement squad from Techiman arrived, the youth would not even budge," he added. "They confronted the police team head-on by throwing stones, while the police team responded with warning rounds and live rubber bullets." They were unconcerned. They maintained their position in the face of the police officers.

So for you to argue that the narrative should be put to rest because of the presence of the Police-military team, it will be too early to examine and discuss that."

Meanwhile, Professor Kwesi Aning, a security expert, has observed that the recent turn of events in the community raises concerns about the Police's integrity and professionalism in carrying out their duties. According to the analyst, the alleged killing of Albert Donkor by the police officer demonstrates the Service's trigger-happy attitude, which must be investigated.

He added that the use of force and unwarranted aggression by police officers in interacting with the people must be addressed in order to restore public trust in the police. He stated that his company is doing study in this area.
