*Govt to restart compensation process on October 28
Story: News DESK
The National Security Ministry has set Thursday, October 28, 2021, as a new date to begin the processes to compensate the victims of the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence.
This comes after the planned payment of compensation packages to the victims by the Ministry on Friday came to an abrupt end after concerns were raised over the process.
Lawyers of the victims called for the suspension of the procedure for further deliberations to allow for transparency and fairness in determining the compensation package to each victim.
Osei Bonsu Dickson, the Head of Legal at the National Security Ministry, said the concerns were legitimate and would be addressed.
Six persons were wounded, with others sustaining minor injuries.
