The MCE for the area has identified three out of the seven as known NPP sympathisers
Family and friends of some seven men killed in an alleged gunfight with police on Tuesday say the armed policemen killed innocent men, not armed robbers.
The Police in Ashanti Region on Tuesday killed the seven men during an operation to clamp down on robberies in Manso, a town in the region.
However, less than 24 hours after the incident, close friends and family of the deceased have come forward to say there may have been a case of mistaken identities.
The Police are set to address the public on the incident later Wednesday.
Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Asokore Mampong, where some of the victims lived, said, “I know three out of the seven…they are NPP [New Patriotic Party] sympathisers and I know them personally.”
He told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show host, Daniel Dadzie on Wednesday, “Yesterday will be the day I will never forget in my life,” lamenting that none of the three he knows personally have any criminal records.
