A boy aged 8, with name unknown has been shot dead with some two sustaining varying degrees of injuries at the grounds of the Awutu Awudua festival, in the Central Region.
The boy whose mother has been thrown into a state of morning with the whole community joining her had stepped out with his friends to observe the rare traditional rites of the community. The two others have been taken to the hospital but the fears of indigenes are hightening due to the magnitude of the wounds they have sustain, some fear they might lose their ability to walk.
Opanin Darko, a local reporter who recounted the incident to Angel TV explained that, the chiefs and elders of the community had decided to hold a short and simple celebration due to covid-19 but the youths took it to a different level, drawing all manner of persons to converge at the scene.
The sad and unfortunate incident dispersed the crowd immediately with the chiefs and elders calling the whole celebration to a sudden halt. The police have been informed and preliminary investigations into the matter has begun.
Our heartfelt condolences goes the family of the deceased and wishing the injured, a speedy recovery.
