Following the gruesome murder of Garishegu Naa Yakubu Andani, Chief of Shigu by an irate youth on the Nyankpala road, security operatives on the ground have arrested 47 suspects for screening. About 20 short guns, daggers, machets and other deadly weapons have been retrieved from the suspects made up of young men and a few elderly persons.
ACP Awoungwutobge Awuni, northern regional police Commander told Citi News that all the suspects will be remanded pending further investigations.
When Citi News visited the Shigu/Garizegu communities Tuesday morning, there was relative calm in the area and the inhabitants had deserted the place leaving behind their animals.
Teachers in the community had not reported to school and the only primary school there was temporarily closed down.
The murdered Garizegu Naa was in his early 60’s and his mortal remains have been deposited at the Tamale Teaching Hospital morgue.
There is a constant military/police patrol team in the Shigu/Garizegu communities to avert any spill over that deadly act.
