Mahama Ayariga, Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, has denounced an attack on a truck bringing traders from Bawku to Binduri, which killed seven persons and injured others.
Unknown gunmen attacked and fired on a vehicle on the outskirts of Binduri. The event occurred on Monday, January 22, when the truck was on its way to the Atuba market.
In a statement, Mahama Ayariga denounced the incident and urged the Ghana Police Service to launch investigations to apprehend and prosecute the culprits.
“I once again appeal to all sides in the Bawku conflict to lay down their arms and let us end this senseless violence,” Mahama further called for calm in his statement.
The District Chief Executive for Binduri, Ayinga Abagre Yakubu, mentioned in an interview on Eyewitness News on Citi FM that it was difficult to link the attack to the ongoing conflict in Bawku and also called for investigations to be conducted.
