A gunfight between land guards and landowners at Dodowa has reportedly left several people injured, as cited vy YEN.com.gh. The incident, which occurred on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, reportedly left several people injured and some patients are traumatized as a result. This was after some victims of a brawl were taken to the hospital for treatment, after they had sustained machete wounds following a fierce clash between two factions.
As the hospital’s authorities were busily providing treatment to the wounded, the irate groups then stormed the facility to continue with their scuffle. The Medical Superintendent of the Dodowa District Hospital, Dr. Ken Brightson, who confirmed the incident, said the scene became more chaotic when he insisted on giving medical care to some victims in a vehicle who were being taken to the police station to write a statement. This was because the only police officer who was in the vehicle with the other victims had called for reinforcement, and the presence of the team led to a fight and subsequent gunshots. According to Dr. Brighton, patients on recovery have been left traumatized after the repeated gunshots left the hospital in chaos.
