Masked gunmen on motorbikes killed 5 people and injured eight others in Ghana’s southern region of Brong Ahafo on Wednesday, police said.

Local police received a report in the afternoon that some four masked men on motorbikes attacked the Tuobodom community, shooting indiscriminately, Brong Ahafo Regional Police Commissioner, Maxwell Sakipasgo Atingan, told Xinhua via telephone.

“They attacked a place where some men were playing draughts and shot at them. Four died on the spot and one later (died ) at the hospital,” he said.

The eight injured were receiving treatment in a local hospital.

The assailants left before the arrival of police, he added.

The locals suspect that the attack could be a campaign of communal clashes. Enditem
