A 34-year-old Fulani herdsman, Issahaku Haruna, was in the early house of June 4, 2020, shot to death by four armed men at the Achubunyor, a community near Damongo in the West Gonja Municipality.
A brother of the deceased called Mumuni who was also shot during the robbery attack told Yen.com.gh that they were sleeping when all of a sudden some four masked gun-wielding men entered into their room.
According to him, they demanded money from them since they had information that one of them will be sending some amount of cash to Burkina Faso the next day.
Mumuni said he told the four men that they had no money with them which resulted in him being subjected to severe beatings from the four men.
He said the men took away his GHC 1,000 and shot at his brother Haruna killing him on the spot.
The body of the deceased was brought to the Damongo Catholic Hospital where a medical examination was conducted on the body with the supervision of the Damongo Divisional Police Command before releasing it for burial.
The Chief of the community, Achunbunyorwura Alhassan Atta in an interview, appealed to the Damongo Police Command through the Municipal Chief Executive to intensify police patrols and also mount barriers in the area since his community is becoming a noted area for armed robbery.
The Assemblyman for the area, Hon. Kipo Yakubu who also expressed shock about the death of the young called on the Police to beef up security in the area since the robbery cases are becoming alarming with most of the Armed Robbers suspected to be Fulani.
Meanwhile, the body of the deceased has been laid to rest at Achubunyor whilst his brother is still on admission at the Damongo Catholic Hospital.
