One dies in fresh Yendi crossfire

Tension seems to be mounting in Yendi in the Northern Region as the Andani Royal family readies to commence final funeral rites for the late overlord of Dagbon, Ya-Naa Yakubu Abdulai Andani.

One person, whose name has only been given as Ali, is said to have been caught in a crossfire around 6:40 pm on Thursday and killed.

Though the exchange of gunshots are not directly linked to the Abudus and Andanis, it is believed that sympathisers of the two families are behind it.

Some houses are said to be on fire.

The Andanis are awaiting the Bolinlana to vacate the Mba Dugu Palace for the final funeral rites on Friday, January 11.
