Some residents in Bimbila in the Nanumba North Municipality of the Northern Region have massed up threatening to demonstrate.
This follows the death of a resident who they alleged was shot by the military.
According to a resident who gave his name only as Abdulai said the man was riding his motorbike when a soldier is said to have shot him.
He was shot in the stomach but later died at the Tamale Teaching Hospital after he was referred from the Bimbila hospital to Tamale.
Every though Mr. Abdulai is unable to tell the cause of the shooting that led to the death of the man, he insisted there is military presence everywhere in the town.
He added the residents continue to mass up fearing that this could escalate into something bigger.
