Five out of the injured persons are in critical condition and have been rushed to the Presbyterian Hospital at Donkorkrom, reports say.

The residents argued that they had marched to the police station to present a petition over recent robbery incidents in the area.

The situation, however, got out of hand when the police started firing into the demonstrators.

Meanwhile, one of the two Police officers who escaped police custody after the attack on a bullion van in Nkawkaw in the Eastern region has been re-arrested.

Lance Corporal Kusi Abrokwah was allegedly found by residents in the bush around Nkawkaw and handed over to the police.
