Following the shooting incident, some angry youth in the area reportedly set ablaze some assets belonging to some Chinese nationals over the shooting.

A local journalist in the area told Accra-based Citi FM that the presence of a joint police and military team could not prevent the youth from burning assets of the foreigner alleged to have killed the Ghanaian.

“I saw the army and policemen, they are around here. But they could not stop what the youth in the town are doing now. They [the youth] are burning the houses around and their cars… the fire service came here but they didn’t get the chance to even quench the fire.”

“I heard one military officer, but they are not allowing anybody to record or to take photos or to make calls. So the guys even warned a military man not to make any calls so they are just standing here. I can see only three military men and four policemen.”
