Gory photos available to YEN.com.gh from the Ashanti Region confirms the death of six staunch supporters of the National Democratic Congress, NDC.
The vehicular accident which happened at Fante in the Ejura Sekyedumase Municipality has also seen several others sustaining varied levels of injury.
It all happened when these supporters were enroute to partake of the campaign tour of the region which will see the party’s flag bearer attend. The accident reportedly happened when the truck-load of supporters was crossed by a motorcycle resulting in the driver losing control of the truck.
Deputy Ashanti Regional Secretary of the NDC, Matthew Kojo Njourkone, has confirmed 6 people have died.
"Unfortunately when they were coming, they had an accident. Immediately after movement, they did not even cover a mile when the incident occurred. Others say the driver tried to dodge a pot hole, his care veered off and they died," he stated.
Media reports indicate the deceased have been conveyed to the Ejura Government Hospital Morgue while the badly injured are receiving treatment.
