Land guard shot dead at Agona Swedru

Accoding to a source speaking on Joy News at about 6:50 Pm, a man narrates an ordeal of a group of land guards who came from no where and attempted to steal ballot boxes away. According to the man (not identified by name), the electoral officials were about counting the ballot papers after a peaceful successful election when just within the blink of an eye the group of land guards appeared from nowhere in the dark to steal the ballot boxes away.

The eye witness went ahead to narrate that, an armed police officer not in his official uniform but deployed to the polling station to perform his usual security duties figured out one of the landguards who attempted to snatch the ballot box and gunned him down dead. The said land guard died on the spot at the said polling with name with-held in the Awutu Senya West district.

The body is said to have been deposited to the Agona Swedru Mortuary while investigations are been carried out.
