At Nakom in the Pusiga District of the Upper East Region, one person was shot and burned to death by unidentified attackers.
Yakubu, a 46-year-old commercial driver, drove from Bawku to Cinkase.
The bandits halted the route and ordered the passengers out before killing and burning the deceased, according to one of the passengers on board.
“In the car, I was with the man and three others.” “We observed some males sitting by the roadside on our way back from our journey,” one of the passengers said.
“When they saw us, they jumped up, grabbed their motorcycles, and followed our car.” I urged our driver that we should park the car at the police checkpoint because the guys were chasing us. However, the driver informed me that I was lying.”
“The guys got in front of us and urged us to pull over. They drew their weapons and informed the man that it was his last day on the planet. They shot him twice, then collected our belongings and took our money.”
“They told us to get out of the car and leave the dead body behind.” “They took out a gallon of gasoline and poured it over the body, which they then torched together with the automobile,” she explained.
