One person has been confirmed dead at the Techiman Holy Family Hospital following a shooting incident at the Techiman South Constituency in the Bono East Region.

One person is also in critical condition while six others have sustained gunshot wounds.

The shooting incident happened when the deployed security personnel fired warning shots to try and control the increasing tension at the collation centre.

Citi News’ Michael Tsatsu Axorlu reported that the incident started after a misunderstanding ensued over the results when it was declared.

The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP’s) Martin Adjei Mensah Korsah had won against Mr. Beyere of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

“The NDC agents did not agree to this and started causing chaos so the security deployed there fired some warning shots to try and ease the tension.

“Following the firing of shots, one person who got seriously injured was rushed in an ambulance to the Techiman Holy Family Hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival,” he reported
