The altercation ensued when a group attempted to prevent two students from registering at the center. Allegedly, these students were brought for registration by an agent of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

However, other political party agents and residents present at the center disputed their eligibility, contending that they were not residents of the area.

Following an initial protest that was temporarily settled, armed individuals later stormed the center brandishing clubs, machetes, and other weapons, demanding the Electoral Commission (EC) officials to proceed with the registration of the students.

Despite resistance from political party agents and residents, a scuffle ensued, resulting in two individuals sustaining injuries to their necks and arms. The injured have been admitted to the St. Mankraso Hospital in the constituency for treatment.
