At least six persons have been confirmed dead while several others are receiving treatment after a truck carrying NDC supporters got involved in an accident.
The incident occurred at Franse near the Ejura/Sekyedumase Constituency of the Ashanti Region Saturday – 24 hours after a similar incident occurred in the New Edubiase Constituency.
The truck was conveying supporters of the main opposition party to the Ejura/Sekyedumase Constituency where the party’s flagbearer John Dramani Mahama is expected to address a mammoth rally.
Emergency services have since been deployed to the scene as they race with time to rescue the perishing.
Ashanti Regional MTTD Commander Supt. Emmanuel Boahene confirmed the incident to MX24 News.
NDC flagbearer John Mahama is expected to visit the injured in the hospital later today.
