Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Electoral Commission has suspended voter registration exercise at Akayakrom in the Banda constituency over insecurity concerns

Voter registration exercise in the constituency has been clouded with violence resulting in the death of one and several others injured.

“A group of people travelling from Bokasi were prevented from entering Akayakrom” Larry Moses, TV3’s Bono regional correspondent reported

According to him, they were travelling to attend a meeting with the EC over eligibility claims.

“The people were challenged over their eligibility, so they were attending a meeting with the Electoral Commission”

The group was prevented from entering Akayakrom and that resulted into chaos.

“It was a clash between the NPP and NDC activists, but the military calmed the situation down.

“Several people got injured and have been rushed to the hospital…. the EC says it does not feel safe so has suspended the exercise” he reported

He said the incident happened at a time a delegation from the Volta caucus in Parliament visited the constituency.

Earlier in July a 28-year-old graduate from the Akim Oda Teacher Training College was stabbed to death

He was alleged to be part of persons suspected to be NPP activists.
