The Assembly member for the area, Hon. Brenya K. Vasco, speaking in an interview with Otec News’ Nana Asare Barimah denied been a renew clash between the Zongo and Asante youth that happened last February this year.

“As I speak to you now we don’t know what actually brought about the fight which caused the death of Musah, but I can say that it is not a renew clash between the Zongos and the Asantes. We will definitely found out at the end of the day and those found guilty will be made to face the law,” he told Nana Asare Barimah.

His body has been conveyed to the Tafo Government Hospital mortuary.

Prevention of the Zongo youth to participate in the burial and funeral rites of a deceased Asante lady by the Asantes in the community in February this year resulted in a bloody clash using broken bottles and machetes to attack each other.
