Tension is mounting at Dondoli a suburb of Wa, the Upper West regional capital, following the killing of a middle-aged man by the police last night.

The deceased, Abubakar Shahban is reported to have been killed by the police anti-robbery taskforce because of his alleged involvement in a robbery gang that has been operating within Wa and its environs.

I added that some members of the robbery gang were arrested while one person escaped with a police handcuff last night.

The command further indicated that the incident will be thoroughly investigated to apprehend all other persons connected to the robbery.
