One Person Shot Dead In Bawku
One person has been shot dead in Bawku barely a few hours after a visit by the Upper East Regional Security Council (REGSEC) to the troubled town. The deceased Osman Awudu, age 45 was shot dead at Sabongari, a suburb of Bawku on the evening of Monday, February 6, 2023.
The death of the deceased was linked to the prolonged ethnic conflict between Kusasis and Mamprusis in Bawku. Personnel from the Ghana Armed Forces were accused of killing some nine persons in separate attacks on February 3 which the military denied in a press statement.
