A 50-year-old man has been killed in a motorcycle accident in the Nkoranza South constituency of the Bono East Region.
Yaw Antwi died on arrival at the Nkoranza St Theresa’s Hospital.
Ghana News Agency (GNA) says that the deceased was returning from the Nkoranza Community Centre polling station after checking his name on the voters’ register.
Electoral Commission officials at the polling station confirmed to the GNA the deceased came to the centre, checked his particulars in the register, but failed to wait a while to vote.
The deceased, according to the EC officials, promised to come back later to vote because he had an urgent matter to attend to.
When the GNA contacted the Nkoranza Municipal Chief Executive, Diana Ataa-Kisiwaa, who also voted at the same centre, she described the incident as “very sad and unfortunate” and expressed her condolences to the bereaved family.
