Two people have sustained gunshot wounds at the Church of Christ Polling station at Kasoa in the Awutu Senya East constituency in the Central region.

Reports indicate that the perpetrators of the crime were in a Black Toyota Land Cruiser who opened fire on a Kia Salon car that was driving out of the polling station.

According to reports, the two people who were injured were NDC polling agents and have been rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. It is not known who the perpetrators are as no party colours were embossed on the vehicle.

The electoral commission has said over 33,000 polling stations have been dedicated for the presidential and parliamentary polls.
