A bus transporting around 45 students from the Presbyterian Nurses Training College, Bawku, was ambushed by two gunmen on motorcycles near Binduri in the Upper East area.
A number of kids injured in the incident were transported to Bawku Presbyterian Hospital for treatment.
This event is alleged to have occurred Friday afternoon and follows the deaths of five people in the previous 48 hours.
The students who had just left were on their way to Bolgatanga when they were accosted by two guys on motorcycles.
According to Albert Sore, JoyNews’ Upper East correspondent, the bus was fired upon near the police barricade in Binduri.
There were no fatalities.
Amadu Hamza, the Municipal Chief Executive of Bawku, confirmed the event to Evans Mensah on Joy FM’s Top Story, and stated that the remaining pupils who escaped unharmed had been led by police to Bolgatanga.
When asked what may have provoked the incident, he stated that gunshots might be heard in Bawku without justification.
“Bawku has just been like that, at any time or any day, someone can just get up with a gun and start firing at you. By the time the military or police get there, the person is gone,” he added.
