The briefing will take place within the first week of December, where the Minister is expected to have updates regarding the person who fired a shot.

The summon comes as a result of a dispute between Ada residents and the salt mining company Electrochem Ghana,which escalated into a shooting incident in Toflokpo.

So far reports indicate that one person has died while several others have sustained injuries.

Parliament has summoned the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, to provide a briefing to the house on the shooting incident at Sege in the Greater Accra Region, which resulted in the death of one person.

Speaking after a statement by the Member of Parliament for the area condemning the incident, the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu, said the Interior Minister must appear before the house in the first week of December to update the house on the matter.

“I will direct the Minister for the Interior to brief the house about the incident, how the violence came to be perpetrated, and who shot into the crowd, whether it was the police, the security, or the private company.”

He noted that after that briefing, if the Committee of Defence and Interior needs to investigate further, parliament will provide the appropriate direction.
