15-year-old boy shot dead at Alavanyo

A 15-year-old boy has been shot dead at Alavanyo in the Volta Region.

The deceased, Prince Kwakutsey, a primary schoolboy was shot in the chest by some unidentified men who invaded the community on Thursday.

He said that the military has already moved to the scene to ensure order.

It is not clear if the shooting is linked to recent clashes between the Alavanyo and Nkonya faction which left three people dead.

It will be recalled that in April, three people from Nkonya were killed by some assailants.

The Volta Regional House of Chiefs subsequently suspended the Paramount Chiefs and Queen Mothers of both traditional areas indefinitely for their failure to maintain peace between the two traditional areas.
