A young man, Mumuni Adakudugu,34, has reportedly slashed four children at Bawku in the Upper East region yesterday [Monday].
Two of the children died on the spot with two others currently on admission at the Presbyterian Hospital after sustaining serious injuries.
It remains unclear what caused the young man to carry out the unfortunate action.
Narrating the incident on Nyankonton Mu Nsem, Rainbow Radio’s Issah Anthony said, the suspect had returned from Kumasi from a journey.
According to him, he stepped out on the premise to go and buy food. He was wielding a cutlass which he reportedly brought from Kumasi.
He is said to have slashed the children multiple times unprovoked.
He was subsequently apprehended by angry residents in the area, tied up and beaten to pulp. The residents had tied him up so the police could come and arrest him. However, he was pronounced dead after the police arrived at the scene.
