Each family received ¢250,000, as the Minister for  Zongo and Inner City Development, Hon. Mustapha Hamid presented on behalf of the President Nana Akufo-Addo.

 The compensation follows a report by a fact-finding committee into the July 17, 2018 fatal shooting of the seven persons at Manso Nkwanta within the Amansie West District.

The fact-finding committee found, who engaged in exchange of fire with the police. There were no facts to establish that the deceased persons were armed robbers.

According to the police officers, the victims allegedly belonged to a gang of robbers who killed their colleague Lance Corporal Daniel Teiku on July 1, 2018.

Some of the families of the victims say autopsy reports handed to them indicate that the victims, fueling suspicion that the killings were deliberate since the evidence shows that, the shot was at close range.

Zongo chiefs in the Ashanti region rejected the police narrative while the youths backed their call for investigations with days of spontaneous violence.

Top government officials moved into the Asawase community to speak with community’s leaders. But even the presence of a government delegation in the community sparked scenes of aggression.
A convoy of government vehicles meandered its way out of the town as pockets of angry youths stood along the road gesticulating in anger.

Since the incident, 21 police officers have been interdicted with a recommendation from the fact-finding committee to prosecute them.

Presenting the compensation to the deceased family members, Hon Mustapha Hamid stressed that, it is sad that, people always tag Muslims as violence people and urge the youth in Zongo communities to refrain from violence and shun from vigilantism.

Some of the family members express appreciation to the president for fulfilling his promise but appealed to him to make justice prevailed.
