The death of the youth shot by the police led to reprisal attacks by some of the youth.https://googleads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/ads?client=ca-pub-9881904178841944&output=html&h=280&adk=144910138&adf=1319678722&pi=t.aa~a.369024205~i.7~rp.4&w=750&fwrn=4&fwrnh=100&lmt=1668589629&num_ads=1&rafmt=1&armr=3&sem=mc&pwprc=2113807958&ad_type=text_image&format=750×280&url=https%3A%2F%2Foyerepafmonline.com%2Fone-dead-4-injured-as-youth-clash-with-police-at-kenyasi%2F&host=ca-host-pub-2644536267352236&fwr=0&pra=3&rh=188&rw=750&rpe=1&resp_fmts=3&wgl=1&fa=27&adsid=ChAIgLHSmwYQktWmkLTu_IsREjkAZMMq5PixHR7HFnkd8agE9XqRudBr481y0IDvYVDfZZdDPtB_1ZwRioIjOYsgP-eassgpbZUUd68&uach=WyJXaW5kb3dzIiwiMTAuMC4wIiwieDg2IiwiIiwiMTA3LjAuNTMwNC4xMDciLFtdLGZhbHNlLG51bGwsIjY0IixbWyJHb29nbGUgQ2hyb21lIiwiMTA3LjAuNTMwNC4xMDciXSxbIkNocm9taXVtIiwiMTA3LjAuNTMwNC4xMDciXSxbIk5vdD1BP0JyYW5kIiwiMjQuMC4wLjAiXV0sZmFsc2Vd&dt=1668589628892&bpp=6&bdt=2750&idt=6&shv=r20221110&mjsv=m202211140101&ptt=9&saldr=aa&abxe=1&cookie=ID%3D90cc1617189417aa-220e209828d70077%3AT%3D1668588415%3ART%3D1668588415%3AS%3DALNI_MZv5BuZ_JwyoSD9Y-C6DnuBH_nBnA&gpic=UID%3D00000b20d93b6646%3AT%3D1668588415%3ART%3D1668588415%3AS%3DALNI_MYgdHm3P3nVnPmCxjg6dh42e_eH3Q&prev_fmts=0x0%2C750x280&nras=3&correlator=1042427115385&frm=20&pv=1&ga_vid=1129661718.1668588396&ga_sid=1668589628&ga_hid=569673506&ga_fc=1&ga_cid=1240342283.1668588396&u_tz=0&u_his=4&u_h=768&u_w=1366&u_ah=728&u_aw=1366&u_cd=24&u_sd=1&dmc=4&adx=105&ady=1455&biw=1349&bih=600&scr_x=0&scr_y=0&eid=44759876%2C44759927%2C44759842%2C42531705%2C31070924%2C44770881%2C44777813&oid=2&pvsid=2265496858709930&tmod=1903684614&uas=0&nvt=1&ref=https%3A%2F%2Foyerepafmonline.com%2Ffuel-prices-likely-to-go-down-today%2F&eae=0&fc=1408&brdim=0%2C0%2C0%2C0%2C1366%2C0%2C1366%2C728%2C1366%2C600&vis=1&rsz=%7C%7Cs%7C&abl=NS&fu=128&bc=31&jar=2022-11-16-08&ifi=3&uci=a!3&btvi=2&fsb=1&xpc=1PMDVoC7rV&p=https%3A//oyerepafmonline.com&dtd=370

This led to a full-blown battle between the police and the youth, which led to the police shooting four more people.

Pictures of the clash sighted by GhanaWeb showed vandalised vehicles including a burnt long track.

The youth of Kenyasi can also be seen in red and black clothing holding all forms of objects, which they supposedly used to attack the police.

The Ghana Police Service has not commented on the incident yet.
