According to Graphic Online reporter Joshua Bediako Koomson, they were throwing stones at the security personnel who in turn fired shots to disperse.

“They also started burning tyres”, he added.

He said the exercise aimed at removing onion traders and scrap dealers to Adjen Kotoku was peaceful until they reached the scrapyard.

The scrap dealers argued that they were not served any notice to vacate the place.

“So the military had to intervene by firing warning shots to disperse them,” he added.
