There is tension at Mamadukoraa, a community in the Chache Electoral Area of the Bole District, following the invasion of the community by gunmen who were heavily armed.
Yagbon News gathered that the gunmen who rode motorbikes into the community, shot sporadically within the house of Mr Yaw, a farmer of about 60 years killing him instantly and another woman by name Dibuone Akua, about 40 years.
A source from the community narrating the incident to Yagbon News said the invasion took place on Saturday dawn when most people were still indoors.
He narrated that all house members of Mr Yaw (family head) were camped in one room while others were guiding the Mr Yaw outside.
The shooting was so intense that everyone was running for a cover in the bush, the source added.
The source said the amount of money taken away by the gun men cannot be quantified.
“A son of the deceased (Yaw), has lost more than thirty thousand Ghana cedis to the invaders as for Mr Yaw we can’t tell how much was taken from him but we believe huge amount of money was equally seized from him”, added the source.
According to the source Mr Yaw was then shot dead including a woman who was locked inside a room after they were done with their operations.
One other child of the deceased was equally beaten up heavily by the invaders.
The incident has since thrown the entire community into a shock and mourning.
The matter has been reported to the Bole District Police Command.
