The families of two persons who were shot dead at Buabula, a suburb of Bawku in the Upper East Region, are demanding full-scale investigations and prosecution of the perpetrators.

The exchange of firearms between the 11th Mechanized Infantry Battalion and some residents led to the death of two persons, and injuries to eight persons including three military personnel.

Houses were burnt with properties, foodstuff, and animals owned by residents destroyed.

But the bereaved families who are mourning the loss of their beloved ones are demanding justice and compensation for their relatives.

“I want the government to investigate the matter and bring the perpetrators of the killing of my son to book. Because I know I have already lost my son, but I need justice for him. I want to see that the people who killed my son are dealt with according to law”, an uncle of one of the deceased said.

The widow of another deceased person who spoke to Citi News asked the government to investigate and bring the perpetrators of the dastardly act to book.

“I don’t know who is going to take care of my children. They have thwarted the future of my children. The police didn’t have any right to kill my husband because he hasn’t committed any crime. If there are laws in Ghana then the law should deal with those who killed my husband because I’m now suffering.”

The Bawku District Police Command in the Upper East Region has arrested 6 persons over the disturbances at Baribari-Buabula, a suburb of Bawku.

Speaking to Citi News, the Bawku District Police Commander, Superintendent Simon Peter Akabati, said the suspects were arrested in connection with the disturbances and shall be put before court soon.

“They are being processed for court for their involvement in the disturbance in the community yesterday [Wednesday]. We will make sure they appear before court soon enough.”

A swoop by the military on Wednesday was met with resistance from residents of the community, resulting in gunfire.

In the process, one civilian was shot dead, while two others sustained injuries.

Three military personnel were also shot in the arm, the foot, and in the back.

They were immediately sent to the Bawku Presbyterian Hospital for first aid and were consequently airlifted to the 37 military hospital for treatment.

“Your dumsor demo was useless”

Actor-turned-politician John Dumelo has fired colleague Yvonne Nelson’s activism during the tenure of former President Mahama and described it as useless.

According to him, whatever prompted the Yvonne Nelson-led “Dumsor” demo at the time was ill-thought through and did not represent the situation at the time.

Accosting Yvonne Nelson in the studios of Adom FM, John Dumelo pointed fingers accusingly at the actress. He added that she rushed in organizing people to demonstrate against the Mahama government.

In providing an explanation for why he felt the demo was useless, John Dumelo intimated that former President Mahama solved the dumsor menace before leaving office. Therefore, Yvonne Nelson and her colleagues embarked on a fruitless agenda.

“I don’t believe it was required.” Let me explain why. Because the president (then-president John Mahama) promised to fix the problem at the time. That’s what he stated, and he rectified it before leaving. It’s a proven fact.

“I’m sure people were fed up at that point in time when Yvonne spearheaded the march. As a result, they needed to take action. But (ex-President) Mahama has promised to rectify it.”

The Dumsor Demo in 2015 was a demonstration organized by celebrities and spearheaded by Yvonne Nelson to campaign against the erratic supply of power at the time.

The demonstration received nationwide attention with notable celebrities like Prince David Osei, Van Vicker et al taking part in it.

After several years, John Dumelo has described the demo as useless and urged Yvonne Nelson to stage a similar demonstration against the current NPP administration.
