Meanwhile, the Mamprugu Youth Association has condemned the unfortunate incident and said this adds up to becoming the fourth time in less than five months such an incident has been recorded on the same stretch.

“We believe that the constant insecurity on the road and the lack of action by the Regional Minister who is the Chairman of the Regional Security Council gives credence to suggestions that these attacks are been perpetuated because the criminals feel protected by the Regional Minister who is their tribesman,” the youth said.
