A group calling itself the Concerned Youth of Odododiodoo Constituency in the Greater Accra Region is demanding justice for two persons who unfortunately lost their lives in the area due to electoral violence.

The Odododiodoo constituency recorded two deaths while six others got injured from a shooting incident in the area post-December 7, 2020 elections. The incidents occurred between supporters of the largest political parties in the country, NDC and NPP.

In an interview on Accra-based Citi FM and monitored by, Convener of the group, Vincent Nii Okai Adams urged the police to provide details regarding the current level of investigations launched into the incident.

“We are in May [2021] now and our concern now is that a bad precedent is being set. The Mayor of Accra has not done anything about this. People talk about Ododiodiodoo and all they can talk about is violence. We want justice. Whoever the perpetrators are they should be brought to book,” he said.

Two persons died while one other person was injured after an alleged shooting incident at the Modak Hotel, Korley Wokon in the Odododiodoo constituency during the 2020 general elections.

There were also gunshots at the City Engineers cluster of polling stations also in the Odododiodoo constituency.

Other violent incidents were also recorded elsewhere during the general elections.
