Three masked men on Thursday night shot and killed a student at Tempane near Garu in the Upper East Region.

Identified as Emmanuel Awuni Issah, 20, the deceased was a student of the Bawku Technical Institute.

The school has been shut down following students’ riot that resulted in the injury of some police officers.

He was riding a motorbike at the time the incident occurred and was on his way home to a village called Gbane-Corner.

Riding with him on the bike was Cynthia Abugri, 23, his brother’s wife.

Police investigations have established that the masked men were wielding AK 47 Assault rifles and that three AK 47 ammunition empty shells were found at the crime scene Friday morning.

The body of the deceased has since been released to the family for burial.
