The gueen mother told Mugabe Maase, host on Inside Politics on Radio XYZ 93.1 that she could not watch the gore when met the untimely time death of the student.

“I just saw blood had been spilled on the road.I have not seen some before. I was trembling and asked myself, is this Ghana?” she narrated.

According to XYZ News reporter, Wisdom Hededzome who got the accident scene later, the angry hawkers along the highway had started burning tyres in protest of the sad incident.

He said the police realised the angry youth had blocked traffic flow and had started firing to ward off the crowd that was bent on stopping the movement of vehicles on the stretch.

190 people are estimated to have been knocked down by vehicles ever since the road was opened to traffic.

The deaths have been linked to the inadequate footbridges on the highway which links Tetteh Quarshie interchange and Aburi in the Eastern Region.
