Three persons have been shot dead by unknown gunmen right in front of the Bawku Senior High School.
It is unknown what sparked the action but eyewitnesses say the three were travelling in a commercial vehicle and were stopped at the entrance of the School and gunned by the assailants.
The deceased have been identified as Fatawu Ibrahim, Ibrahim Abdulai and Bunyaminu Adam.
Meanwhile, the Mamprugu Youth Association has condemned the fatal incident and said it becomes the fourth in less than five months on the same stretch.
“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.”
