Six police officers have sustained injuries following a clash with tricycle riders at the premises of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly.

The riders pelted stones, destroying the windscreens of two cars owned by KMA staff. A military team had to intervene to stop the rioting.

The aggrieved tricycle riders besieged the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly in an attempt to retrieve their seized tricycles. But their action was fiercely resisted by the police.

This angered the rider, resulting in a clash with the police.

In the process, six of the officers sustained injuries and are currently receiving treatment at the KMA clinic. The Assembly called in military intervention, who managed to disperse the mob and arrested 12 tricycle riders.




Communications Director for KMA, Afia Konadu, says the commercial tricycle riders earlier blocked the Suame stretch leading to the central business district.


“The police from Suame had to also come in and intervene. They moved from that area to the KMA yard for their seized tricycles but when we refused, they clashed with the police resulting in some injuries,” she said.
