Six others, according to him, are in stable condition at the Manhyia government hospital.

Present to witness the burial rites were the Ashanti regional Minister, John Alexander Ackon, Member of Parliament for Asawase, Muntaka Mubarak, Municipal Chief Executive, Nurudeen Amedan, families of the deceased and representatives of political parties.
