Member of Parliament Hon. Gizzella Agbtuo Tetteh has since visited the 15 victims at the hospital and the marketplace where the tragedy occurred.
The MP detailed the situation to Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
She added that she has partnered with the National Disaster Management Organisation to assist the victims.
“I have visited some of the victims. Some of them are being treated at a trauma centre. Others have suffered serious injuries. I personally paid the victims’ medical bills and gave them stipends.
I’ve done my best to deal with the matter. I would also send carpenters to the market to rebuild the sheds that had been demolished.”
