One person has died and seven seriously injured in an accident at Ekumfi Esaakyire as they jubilated following the declaration of Nana Akuffo Addo as President-elect in the 2020 presidential elections.

The accident occurred around 8:30 PM Wednesday on the Ekumfi Esaakyire to Ajumako Road when the victims who are supporters of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) were driving in a taxi cab in excitement.

An eyewitness told Kasapa News Yaw Boagyan that the taxi was moving at top speed and in the process, the driver lost control of the car, somersaulted, and plunged into a bush.

One died on the spot while seven others were seriously injured.

The body has been deposited at Saltpond Mortuary while the injured are also receiving treatment at Mankessim Government Hospital.

The opposition NDC party won the Parliamentary election in Ekumfi but the ruing NPP won the presidential election.
