According to Adjeikum Owusu, a complainant alerted the police after sighting the two suspects in a vehicle at the Yapei Police barrier in an attempt to attend the burial of the late Kijasiwura Kassim, who died due to an illness on Thursday, June 10.

“Kijasiwura Kassim died and his children who were involved in the Debre clash had to be there before they bury the corpse. Now that their father is dead, they decided to return. So, that was why they were coming from their hideouts and Police got information that they were coming.

“So, one of the complainants ran to Yapei Police Station and also informed the Police that they heard those suspects were coming to Mpaha,” he stated.

The culprits, in a report filed by Isaac Nongya had allegedly been in hideout at Tamale.
