Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Letsa, says government will initiate full-scale investigations into the incident at Dzolo-Gbogame in the Ho West District that led to the death of Wisdom Darke.

The Minister said this when he visited the town to commiserate with the bereaved family.

The Chiefs and people of the area have described the death of the 28-year old man as “preventable,” adding that those who would be found culpable through police investigation would be dealt with appropriately in accordance with the law.

On January 22, Darke, a shop owner at Dzolo-Gbogame lost his life when a Ho West District Assembly pick-up allegedly run over him following a misunderstanding with the Assembly taskforce over revenue.

The incident also culminated in an act of vandalism at the Ho West District Assembly by some youth of the town.

Dr. Letsa said the investigation would focus on the event leading to the death of the young man, attacks on the Assembly and Journalists.

He implored people in the community to cooperate with the Police in the investigation by providing them with necessary and credible information.

The Minister assured the bereaved family, the chiefs and people that Justice would not be compromised and that government would provide support towards the burial of the deceased.
