A man died Sunday at Ashaiman after suffering gunshot wounds from a military officer enforcing the lockdown in the area.

 The civilian was said to have engaged in a scuffle with the officer, after he reportedly tried to resist an arrest, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, revealed on ‘The Lockdown’ with Emefa Apawu.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah said the victim, however, died later while he was being transported to the hospital.

The Military High Command has, in a release, said the civilian was being arrested on suspicion of indulging in illegal conduct contrary to the Narcotics Act.

“Initial reports are that the suspect in resisting arrest attempted to disarm the soldier leading to a struggle during which the soldier’s rifle accidentally went off,” Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Armed Forces, Colonel Eric Aggrey-Quarshie, said in a release.

The body has been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue in Accra, the statement added.
