Three persons were shot and wounded while 16 houses were torched at Bongini, a village near Sakogu in the Bunkpurugu/Yunyoo District, when Bimobas allegedly attacked the area on Thursday dawn.

Assistant Superintendant of Police (ASP) Ebenezer Tetteh, Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer stated that one Sakuaka Dinja, 28 was allegedly shot in the head and killed by unknown assailants on Wednesday.

He said the Bimobas, who suspected members of the Bongini village for committing the act, mobilized and attacked the community, which was predominately Mamprusi and Konkomba settlement.

ASP Tetteh said the swift intervention of the police prevented the attack from escalating, saying that security has been intensified and that more police personnel are being deplored to the area.

According to him, no arrest has been made and that calm has since returned to the area.
