In a related development, two members of the group are in the custody of the police for their role in the incident.

Paul Atta Onyinah, 49, and Richard Yaw Brefo, 51, were picked up at Tafo Pankrono in the Ashanti Region and charged with conspiracy to commit crime and rioting.

They have been remanded by a Kumasi Circuit court.

Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, in a meeting with Metropolitan and Municipal District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) in Accra, slammed ex-President Mahama's intended comeback.

He mocked: “I hear the incompetent one says he wants to come back, he wants to come and do more damage, as if he didn’t do enough damage; well we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, we’re waiting for him, oh my God”.

In a press release signed by the spokesperson of the campaign, James Agyenim Boateng, he said: "Let him also be reminded that respect for political office holders is earned and that if he chooses to play it dirty, he will get it back in equal measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over".

Three people sustained various injuries at the Accra Mall as one of its roofs caved in on Thursday.

The accident happened at a part of the mall in the aisle near the I-Store and Huawei area.

 

An eyewitness, who had visited a restaurant at the mall, said he was confused when he heard the loud noise in the mall, arguably one of the most visited facilities in Accra.

Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said he was disturbed by the collapse of the ceiling of a section of the Accra Mall.
