A sad report published by 3News indicates that three persons have been shot dead by unknown gunmen right in front of the Bawku Senior High School.
According to the report, the deceased, without any prior antecedent were travelling in a commercial vehicle when they were shot after their car made a stop in front of the school.
3News has mentioned the names of the deceased as Fatawu Ibrahim, Ibrahim Abdulai and Bunyaminu Adam.
Meanwhile, the Mamprugu Youth Association has reacted to the unfortunate incident and bemoaned how incidents of that sort have become rampant in recent times.
“We believe that the constant insecurity on the road and the lack of action by the Regional Minister who is the Chairman of the Regional Security Council gives credence to suggestions that these attacks are been perpetuated because the criminals feel protected by the Regional Minister who is their tribesman,” the youth said.
“It is in this regard that we have for several months now appealed to Government to at least reassign the Regional Minister to a different region it does not want to sack him from Government.”
They called on the security agencies to bring the perpetrators to book, as a matter of urgency.
“We also urge the security agencies to as a matter of urgency dismantle the illegal lorry station and market at “Highways” which have been used as a point for these terrorist attacks.”
