A Ghanaian resident in London, Nana Sefa Twum, has said no Ghanaian has been affected in Saturday’s terrorist attack in London.
Reports say the death toll in the incident has risen to seven after three suspects were shot dead by police on Saturday June 3.
A white van hit pedestrians on London Bridge at about 22:00 BST on Saturday, then three men got out and stabbed people in nearby Borough Market.
Police said the three men were wearing fake bomb vests, and the hurt at least 48 people.
One of those hurt was a police officer who was stabbed after going to help. His injuries are not life-threatening.
Ghanaians at home became concerned, wondering if any Ghanaian in London was hurt in the incident.
But Nana Sefa Twum told Adom News said: “By and large, everyone is fine. The GUBA award was ongoing at the time the incident happened.
“Several Ghanaians in London also attended church that same time and so by and large no Ghanaian has been affected per the information we are picking up.”
