The police has debunked reports that a man who reportedly attempted to snatch a ballot box at Obrachire in the Awutu Senya West Constituency in the Central Region has been gunned down.

Rather, the man is said to have been attacked by a mob.

The Public Relations Officer of the Central Regional Police Command, DSP Irene Oppong provided the clarification and said investigations are ongoing.

She said the reasons for the attack on the man is not yet known.

"We have not been able to get that information but then investigations are ongoing, we are in touch with opinion leaders and informants in that area, so whatever comes out will be shared with the media but we want it to be on record that nobody has been shot dead at Awutu Senya West and to be precise, Obrachire," Ms Oppong said.

She said the police moved to the scene and rescued the man, who has been taken to the Swedru Hospital for treatment.

She said investigations are ongoing to get what exactly happened.
