Driver of the District Chief Executive (DCE) for Karaga in the Northern Region, Issah Ziblim, has been shot dead.
The said incident according to Joy News occurred in the early hours of Saturday, May 29, on the Yamokaraga stretch of the Karaga road.
Northern Regional Crime Officer, Superintendent Bernard Baba Ananga, who confirmed the incident said preliminary investigations have begun into the murder.
