The recent murder of Alhassan Azumah, the Deputy Registrar of Bolgatanga Technical University, has left the community of Bolgatanga and the surrounding Bonaboto area reeling. Mr. Azumah was killed in his home on January 17th in what authorities describe as a cold-blooded attack.

The Bonaboto Association was quick to condemn the killing, calling it a “cowardly act” with no place in the typically peaceful regional capital. The group stated that, in the aftermath, it had worked to calm angry citizens who were ready to evict those they suspected of being involved. Their interventions helped restrain mass evictions, though tensions still remain high.

“The receptive and peaceful nature of the people in Bolgatanga and the Bonaboto area should not be taken for granted,” cautioned the Bonaboto Association in an official statement signed by Prof. Samuel Awinkene Atintono National President and Dr. E. Agurgo Balfour Regional Chairman. While they expressed confidence in the ongoing police investigation, the group warned that this kind of violent crime cannot become commonplace.

Along with regional security agencies and peace councils, the Association promised continued engagement with communities to prevent any retaliatory attacks or further violence. They also vowed to support law enforcement efforts to find Azumah’s killers and bring them to justice.

“We wish to assure the Police, DISEC, REGSEC, and other security agencies of our support in their investigations,” the statement read, “to ensure that this incident remains the last of its kind in Bolga.”

The manhunt for the perpetrators continues in the usually quiet city. Authorities have not released any information about potential suspects or motives at this time.
