Nine persons sustained gunshot wounds late last night at Aboabo, a suburb of Tamale, during activities to herald the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) national delegates’ conference.
The nine are said to have been shot by unidentified men in a moving taxi, and another on a motor bike.
Freelance journalist Mahama Shaibu told Joy News on Friday that two of the injured, Zileha Adow and Alhasan Bako, are in critical condition.
‘Another sustained a fractured leg but the other six sustained minor gunshot wounds’, reports Shaibu.
The injured are receiving treatment at the Tamale Teaching Hospital.
Shaibu reports that the injured were part of some youths who had gathred for a night jam ahead of the party’s conference.
Chief Inspector Ebenezer Tetteh, Public Relations Officer of the Police in the Northern Region has confirmed the incident.
He said the police are pursuing leads they received from two eyewitness.
He said preliminary investigations they received suggest the 9 revelers who were shot were supporters of Nana Akufo-Addo, one of the key aspirants of the presidential candidate position of the party.
He said the police are doing everything possible to bring the perpetrators of last night’s shooting incident to book.
