Bawku chieftaincy clashes: Two shot dead, three injured

    Two individuals were shot dead in a renewed clash in Bawku in the Upper East Region on January 10, 2022.

    Three others also sustained injuries, Asaase news reports.

    The Municipal Chief Executive of Bawku, Hamza Amadu, who confirmed the news to Asaase News, said one of the victims died on Monday evening whilst the second person died on Tuesday.

    He adds the police have commenced complete investigations to fish out individuals who carried out the shootings.

    “We are yet to know the individuals who carried out these shootings, and that’s why the police are into a full investigation to unravel the people behind these incidents. I don’t think this is an act of terrorism; it is definitely part of the conflict. With the incident that happened last night (January 10), two people were arrested and are currently in police custody,” Amadu stated.

    Meanwhile, the Upper East Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has banned men from carrying their fellow men on the same motorcycle in the Bawku Municipality.

    The new directive was enforced after a critical examination of the security situation in Bawku.
