The Manhyia Divisional Police Command in the Ashanti Region has denied reports on main-stream and social media that a teenager who was shot at Bonjour filling station near the Manhyia Roundabout in Kumasi is dead.

The victim, Osman Abdul Karim was first rushed to the Manhyia District Hospital after the shooting and was later referred to the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) where he is currently responding to treatment, Police say.

Osman was part of revelers who had trooped to the restaurant to have fun as part of the Edul-Fitr celebrations.

According to according to eyewitnesses the victim was shot in the forehead in an attempt by his assailants to snatch his mobile phone which he resisted to surrender.

Speaking to Korsi Asiseh on Daybreak Kapital on Kapital Radio 97.1 FM, Manhyia Divisional Police Commander, Chief Superintendent Kwaku Buah said such reports must be disregarded.

He said police have begun investigations into the matter and called on the public to assist them with information to track the perpetrators. “Let me be quick to say that some social media reports and radio stations are saying that the boy is dead. I am confirming to your radio station and your listeners that the boy is not dead. It is not true that the boy is dead. He is alive and responding to treatment.”

Muslims across the world climax the 30-days fast with a lot of marry making activities.

It would be recalled that nine lives were lost and several others sustaining injuries in a stampede at the Asawase community center in similar celebrations last year.
