Manso Nkwanta Shooting Incident Committee Submits Report

The Independent Committee set up to investigate the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of 7 young men at Manso Nkwanta in the Ashanti Region has submitted its report to the Vice President of the Republic.

The report was submitted to Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Wednesday 26th September, 2018.

A statement signed by Hon Alhaji Abu-Bakar Saddique Boniface, Minister of State at the Office of the Vice President, indicated that the report has been forwarded to the Attorney General for study and advice.

The setting up of the Independent Committee was necessitated by the differing versions of the circumstances leading to the shooting and killing of the seven, who reportedly lived in Asawase, a suburb of Kumasi, by the Police on Tuesday 17th July, 2018.

Government wishes to have the matter resolved in as short a time as possible. We wish to once again express our condolences to the bereaved families, and to assure that no effort will be spared to bring closure to this unfortunate incident,” the statement said.
