A 34 year old Fulani herdsman Issahaku Haruna was in the early hous of today 4th June, 2020 shot to death by four armed men at the Achubunyor, a community near Damongo in the West Gonja Municipality.
A brother of the deceased called Mumuni who was also shot during the robbery attack told Bole based Nkilgi FM they were sleeping when all of a sudden some four masked gun wielding men entered into their room, demanding money from them since they had information that one of them will be sending some amount of cash to Burkina Faso the next day.
Mumuni said he told the four men that they had no money with them which resulted to him being subjected to severe beatings from the four men.
