It would be recalled that after the District Level Election, an altercation within the Yorogo community led to the fatal stabbing of a 22-year-old man.

After the incident, the Assembly member for Yorogo Electoral Area in the Bolgatanga Municipality of the Upper East Region, Desmond Aniah, confirmed to this website that the prime suspect involved in the fatal stabbing of the 22-year-old man on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, was apprehended by the police.

The suspect’s accomplices, however, remain elusive, he added. At the time Mr. Aniah spoke to A1 Radio, he mentioned that the motive behind the heinous act remains unclear, but he emphasized that the arrested suspect had a history of hooliganism and is known for the use of hard drugs within the community.

The Assembly member expressed relief that law enforcement acted swiftly to detain the suspect, providing a sense of justice and security to the residents of Yorogo. Mr. Aniah commended the police for their diligence in apprehending the alleged perpetrator and urged them to intensify efforts to capture the remaining individuals involved in the crime.

Meanwhile, the Chief of Yorogo, Naba Kosomo Lebge Serum-Tinganbila-Lebge Goo, has expressed strong reservations about the incident. In a speech read on his behalf, Naba Serum-Tinganbila-Lebge Goo condemned the act in no uncertain terms.

The Chief of the area hoped that the youth would learn from the incident.

“I condemn the recent events that took place during the district-level elections, leading to the death of an energetic young man. I hope that the youth will learn from the unfortunate happenings and the arrests of individuals involved and desist from actions that will tarnish the image of the community.”

Naba Serum-Tinganbila-Lebge Goo made these comments at the Tigsitaabe festival. The Tigsitaaba festival was instituted in 2019 by residents of Yorogo. The festival is to foster unity and promote development among the eight clans in Yorogo.

The Chief of Yorogo called on young people within the area to be committed to continuously learning and self-development.

“Mr. Chairman, before I end my address, I would like to appeal to the youth to be responsible in all their dealings, eschew alcoholism, reckless driving, and riding of motorbikes and other forms of vices. We must take education or learning a trade seriously if we will make progress as individuals and as a community.”
