We’ve been told two supporters of the NDC have died and 52 others suffered different levels of injuries in a horrible KIA accident in the Banda Constituency of the Bono Region.
According to eyewitnesses’ account, the ghastly accident occurred at about midday on Banda Dorbor – Banda Ahenkro road in the Bono Region on Thursday, November 26, 2020,
A Kia truck full of supporters of the National Democratic Congress numbering about 70, was said to be moving from Banda Dorbor to Banda Ahenkro for campaign activities.
Per the eyewitness report, the Kia truck which was carrying the passengers somersaulted at a certain stretch of the road.
The witness further disclosed he was at school when he received a phone call that some people from his hometown have been involved in a lorry accident and they brought the victims to the Nsawkaw hospital, so he quickly rushed to the hospital and to find out that his brother was a victim.
The bodies of the deceased persons have been deposited at the Methodist Hospital in Wenchi for preservation while the injured with one in a critical condition are receiving treatment at the same health centre.
