The weapons used included locally manufactured guns, clubs, cutlasses, and iron bars.

The disturbances which occurred at the Assin Praso market square created fear and panic among market women and passers-by.

A team of Police officers from Assin Praso led by the Station Officer, Chief Inspector Bukari Iddrisu Iddi upon receiving the information rapidly responded to the scene but unfortunately, the rioters took to their heels.
