Sommit Duut, the Ashanti Regional Director of the National Ambulance Service, says police officers who reacted to the protest at Kumasi’s Islamic Senior High School did not use live rounds to disperse the gathering.
He observed that the students were suffering from respiratory problems. According to him, the demonstrators’ behavior influenced his approach to the police. “All we treated were those who were having trouble breathing and were weary; we didn’t have any bloody situations.” They [victims] are doing OK; they are responding to treatment and are all in good health. “As of far, we haven’t received any bad response from the hospital,” he told Joy FM in Accra.
Meanwhile, the police confirmed in a statement that they are looking into the case.
