One of the victims who were injured during the clash between angry youth of Lamashegu and the Police on Sunday afternoon has died, Justicefmonline has learnt.

Abdul Hakim, a resident of Lamashegu died from gunshot wounds he sustained in the violent clashes. He was allegedly hit by a stray bullet, allegedly fired by the police.

He was one of at least four persons who sustained varying degrees of injury after angry youth of the area clashed with the police for allegedly shooting a driver at the Lamshegu Chief Palace, Sunday afternoon.

The police on their patrols allegedly stopped an unregistered vehicle but the driver refused to stop resulting in the police chasing the vehicle.

One Musah, an occupant of the said vehicle told journalists that because they refused to stop they decided to rather move to the Lamashegu chief’s palace for refuge.

According to him, as soon as they arrived at the palace compound, the police fired a warning shot which hit the driver in the waist by a female officer.

“When the driver shouted that they have shot him we all got down and runway, later when we returned we were told that they had rushed him to the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH),” he said.

This infuriated the youth in the area, leading to the clashes.

Meanwhile, Rahaman Jabir, the driver who was allegedly shot by the police says he is responding to treatment.
