Brother of one of the victims who got shot at La Bawaleshie in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency during the by-election says the family has not been officially informed over the decision to have the right leg of their brother amputated.

Ibrahim Musa told Kwabena Agyapong on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, there is nothing showing that his brother would have his leg amputated.

He said, the family is shocked the media has carried the story when the family is unaware of the decision.

Ibrahim Musa commended the doctors at the 37 Military Hospital for treating their brother so well.

According to him, the brother who has undergone two surgeries already and awaiting the third one is responding to treatment.

Doctors at the 37 Military Hospital may have to amputate the leg of one of the victims of the recently held Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence.

According to the doctors, amputation of the badly damaged leg could be the only way to keep him alive after the serious injury sustained.

The victim, Ishalu Yaro, 37 years and other victims numbering about five were shot at close range by masked men believed to be operatives from the national security who had stormed the residence of the NDC candidate for the by election on suspicion of him keeping guns.

Yaro, injured right leg has been wrapped in a huge white bandage with a shiny metal fixed along the leg to keep it straight and supported with pillows because of the close-range shot scattered the bones in his legs leaving writhing in acute pain.

But doctors have said he would have to be amputated to sustain his life.

The victim is a footballer and has undergone two separate surgeries to help him recover.

But Ibrahim Musa says the hospital has not commuted that to them.
