A commercial vehicle has been ambushed in Bawku of the Upper East region.

The incident occurred in the early hours of Monday, 27 November 2023.

The driver of the vehicle, believed to be a Mamprusi, is, however, feared dead. 

The incident is reported to have occurred near the old Quality Medical Centre in Bawku, leading to sporadic gunshots in the Municipality.

Meanwhile, there is a power outage in some parts of the municipality.

This, some of the locals, have attributed to the sporadic gunshots, which they say have affected the electricity supply network.

Peace had been reigning in Bawku until a Moshie tricycle operator, was killed at Daduri on Friday, 24 November 2023, followed by today’s incident.
