The police’s reclamation exercise at the Kotobabi Market in Accra resulted in the death of one and the injury of others when they squared off with the youths of the area.

The exercise was conducted by the police to evict squatters and clear the area which had become a breeding ground for thieves and other illegal activities including prostitution and drug trafficking.

The exercise which was sponsored by the Tema West Municipal Assembly to demolish the area took a drastic turn when the youth and inhabitants resisted eviction which led to a scuffle.

According to a 3News report, the Tema West MCE explained that his people were attacked which had to take the police to restore order.

Suspected individuals have been arrested.
