The rampage that happens at Ejura leading to the shooting of a 16-year old boy, has had his right leg amputated by doctors at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.
According to sources, the victim, Awal Misbawu, was initially referred to the St. John of God Hospital at Duayaw-Nkwanta, and later sent to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital where the leg was amputated on Saturday. Speaking to the victim’s mother, she expresses sorrow for her son and discloses how her son is in pain.
“The boy was crying so painfully and we had to call on our chief who in turn also called a doctor for us and the child was admitted. So he [Doctor] informed us that the leg cannot be worked on so he has to be amputated. So that has been done and my son is in pain right now.”
Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for Ejura/Sekyedumase, Bawah Mohammed Braimah, urged the government to cater for the medical bills of the victim and all other four victims who happen to sustain gunshot wounds.
“I am very sad and disappointed in the Regional Security Council especially the Regional Minister because this incident happened last week Tuesday and it was reported that six people have been shot and two have died. Per the narration of the minister, he said he deployed the soldiers and the fallout was that four are injured and two have died, you only focused on the dead and left those who got injured.”
