Four (4) members of the pro-NPP vigilante group, Kandahar Boys, have been arrested by a joint police and military team in Tamale, the Northern Regional capital.

The arrest comes days after the dreaded group stormed the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) and drove out the CEO of the facility, Dr David Zaawumya Kolbila, accusing him of being an NDC mole.


Northern Regional Police spokesman, DSP Mohamammed Yussif Tanko, who confirmed the arrest said the men were picked up at 2:00 pm on Wednesday and taken to the Northern Regional Police Command for further interrogation.

Dr Kolbila has since been reinstated by the Northern Regional Security Council led by the Minister Salifu Saeed with a promise to beef up security at the hospital to prevent the perennial disturbances instigated by party foot soldiers.
