The British High Commission in Ghana has admonished its nationals to stay away from public gatherings after violent clashes in Ejura in the Ashanti region, leading to the deaths.
Two people were shot dead by the military with over seven people injured during violent clashes at Ejura. The clashes occurred after a social media activist was attacked by a mob and beaten to death for making the government unpopular.
In a tweet, the High Commission in a tweet expressed their concerns over the reports of violence in the country.
“We are concerned about reports of violence and saddened by the news of deaths in Ejura. Our thoughts are with the families and community at this time.”
