An attack on residents of Zacholi in the Yendi Municipality of the Northern Region has left nine men dead and several others badly injured.
Some properties were also set ablaze in the attack.
According to reports, the attack came after allegations that some armed robbers had attacked and killed a Konkomba man on Tuesday, April 11, 2022.
There is suspicion that this was a retaliatory attack on Zacholi.
The bodies of the deceased persons were found lying in the open when Citi News arrived at the scene.
“I was here when they came, as soon as they entered, they started shooting and one man just shot my husband, and he is dead. I was standing there, and they started burning our homes,” one woman said after the attack.
“I have one child, and he has been killed. Now I have no child, no one to look after me again,” another added.
There is some police presence at the scene of the attack.
