A walk through the town saw people going about their activities.
Stores and shops have been re-opened with trading activities going on smoothly.
However, others who fled the town to neighbouring communities in the heat of the disturbances are yet to return home.

Security personnel were spotted at vantage points in the town monitoring the situation.

Meanwhile, the five deceased persons have all been identified.

They are Nana Ampabeng Kyeremeh, Kwaku Duah, Adjei Okrah, Kwaku Firi and George Adjei.

The injured persons are Robert Mensah, Ndekuguri Martin, Moro Bashiru, Kofi Domfeh and Felix Banini. The rest are Gladys Agyeiwaa, a pregnant woman, William Asante and Amos Adjei, a cripple.

All of them have since been treated and discharged from the Techiman Holy Family Hospital. Ms Agyeiwaa, however, had her pregnancy aborted in the process.
