A surgical specialist at the hospital, Dr. Davor Anthony said “we received seven patients, out of which currently five are on admission and two were discharged a day after the incident.”“The five on admission, three have undergone surgery (laparotomies ) and  they will be here a minimum of one day and one of them will be here for a day and the rest will be here for maybe three days and the other two females we expect to do their surgery for them today and they will go home today. But one of them is suppose to be referred because he has a fracture and since we don’t have an orthopedic surged here we have to send him to Bawku Presbyterian hospital to see the orthopedic surged however none of the seven victims have lost his or her live,”  Dr. Davor stressed.

Some of the victims in an interaction with Citi News said they were positively responding to treatment whilst others were patiently waiting on doctors for a successful surgery in order that they will be discharged.
