The Chief of Gbigma yili in Bimbilla, Naa Andani Dasana, has been gunned down at his mosque by unknown assailants. He was killed right after evening prayers on Thursday evening.

It is not clear if he died alongside others as happened in the Dagbon crisis in the same Northern region in March 2002, when the Overlord, Ya Na Yakubu Andani II, was beheaded together with scores of others in his palace by a rival royal family.

ust like in the Dagbon crisis, two feuding royal gates are involved in the Bimibilla crisis. They are Gbigma yili and Bansi yili gates.

Our Northern regional correspondent Kizito Abagoame reports that there is a long-standing dispute between the two gates.

Naa Dasana, according to Kizito Abagoame, was threatened with death by followers of the late rival chief of Bansi yili, Nakpa Naa, after the latter died of strange causes.

Naa Dasana allegedly denied his late rival the appropriate burial rites, thus incurring the wrath of Nakpa Naa’s followers who vowed to kill him.

Security has been heightened in area following the killing.
