Some police personnel and the people of Lamashegu in Tamale clashed over the weekend after an officer shot a young man.
According to reports, the young man was chased by the police to Lamashegu Chief’s Palace and was shot for refusing to stop when he was ordered to do so.
The incident resulted in the burning of car tyres and wood on some major highways in Tamale.
Some agitated residents also hurled stones at the police patrol team who had come to the scene to restore calm.
This led to the death of Abdul Hakim, a Junior High School(JHS) graduate waiting for his BECE results.
