On Monday, March 11, 2024, the event happened when the officers were reacting to a fire outbreak at the Racecourse Market.

The suspects said that the fire fighters’ slow response to the event encouraged them to throw stones at them.

A portion of the Racecourse Market, home to food and ingredient vendors as well as Millers, was completely destroyed by the fire, which broke out on Monday at around one in the morning.

There was severe damage, affecting about 180 stores.

D.O. 3 Simon Ben Boadu, the Fire Commander of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital Fire Station, blamed the fire’s quick spread to the attacks on the fire team.

“Our preliminary investigations revealed that the fire started from one of the corn mills and because the shops are close, it spread to other shops, we have counted about 180 shops.

“Investigations are still ongoing. We are going to pursue this to the latter. Whatever happens to them [arrested suspects] will be a deterrent to others that the attack on firemen must stop,” he said.
