Youth in Gambaga call for investigation into killing of two natives

The youth of Gambaga in the North East Region have called on the security agencies to undertake a full-scale investigation to unravel the circumstances that led to the killing of two young men in the Bawku area on Tuesday (27 December).

The youth said the young men, identified as Iddrisu Issifu and Baba Razak, were on a business trip to deliver a horse to a businessman in Kulungugu when they were attacked near Bugri and gruesomely murdered.

The youth have condemned the killing, adding that the attack on the natives was complete disrespect to the people of Gambaga and the Mamprugu Kingdom who have always preached peace.

The youth are, therefore, urging the security agencies to seriously look into the killing and unravel the faces behind the cruel act to face the full rigours of the law.

Below is the full statement:
