One person was injured Sunday night when armed men stormed the Tambalug-Kuka community in the Bawku Municipality in the Upper West Region and started shooting indiscriminately.

The injured, Imoro Musah, a 13-year-old junior high school pupil was shot in the leg and was taken to the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital for treatment.

Domestic animals were also not spared when the armed men attacked the community. Two bullocks and a donkey were shot dead.

Narrating the incident to the Ghana News Agency, the Assembly Man for the area, Mr Paul Agindaug Akubilla said the people in the community are currently living in fear due to the “terrifying” situation.

He said the community members realising that they could not defend themselves vacated their homes that night.

He said as the Tambalug-Kuka community was far from Bawku and Garu, security personnel could not reach it early enough to arrest the perpetrators.

Mr Akubilla said no community member could tell the purpose of the attack since the armed men did not make away with any property.

He said 19 empty shells of AK 47 assault raffle were retrieved and handed over to the police.

“This incident is not the first of its kind and I think an in-depth investigation should be carried out to find the perpetrators”, he said.
