Security Council in Bawku, in the Upper East Region, will be meeting Tuesday to look into a shooting incident in the town that left two dead and one in critical condition.

The victims, Alhassan Hadi and Tijani Issaka, were shot in their homes at Patelmeh after evening prayers.

Assemblyman for the area Imoro Mahamadu who witnessed the incident said the victims "were sitting in front of their house when a group of people started moving towards them. By the time they realized they started firing…two died instantly".

There is little information about who perpetrated the murder.

However, the attacks believed to have been triggered by a long standing chieftaincy dispute between the rival Mamprusis and Kusasis in the area.

Police is expected to begin investigations Tuesday August 19, 2014.
