7 Arrested Over Salaga Rampage Transferred To Accra



The seven persons arrested in connection with disturbances in Salaga following the naming of Damongo as capital of the newly created Savannah Region have been transferred to Accra.

The Northern Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), DSP Mohammed Yusif Tanko, who confirmed the incident to DGN Online, said the suspects were being held for further interrogations.

He added that the suspects, who have not been charged, would be arraigned before a court in Accra instead of Salaga where the crime was allegedly committed.

Meanwhile, tension is mounting in Salaga due to the transfer of the suspects to Accra to face prosecution.

The irate youth asked the authorities to immediately release the suspects or face their wrath.

Some angry youth in Salaga went on rampage on Tuesday, burning and destroying properties belonging to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) after the president named Damango as the capital of the Savannah regional capital last Thursday.

They set fire to the NPP constituency office and other party properties in the East Gonja District of the Savannah Region, formerly in the Northern Region.

They also burnt down the NPP Office, posters billboards and other properties of the party.

The angry youth claimed they had given the governing NPP a seat in parliament and, therefore, deserved to host the regional capital.

The irate youth vowed to vote against the NPP in 2020 for disappointing them.

Security has been beefed up in Salaga and its environs owing to the development.

Junior US details his fight with Showboy that got him imprisoned



Shatta Wale’s close friend known as Junior US who according to sources caused the arrest of Ghanaian based US rapper, Showboy has reacted to his prison sentence.

According to Junior US originally known as Nana Yaw Opoku, he never pressed charges against Showboy but in turn (Showboy) accused him of robbery which he had to defend himself.

“This case started three years ago and he was fighting against Georgia state. I never pressed charges against Showboy, I never wrote any statement against him but he rather wanted to take me to jail.

Showboy believes I don’t have papers so I can’t take him to court and that he has Lawyers to defend him. Everything started when Criss Waddle sent me to go give some money to Showboy which resulted in a misunderstanding and ended up stabbing me.

Showboy accused me of robbery so I went to court to defend myself and not to cause his arrest.

I received a letter from Georgia state claiming I went to rob Showboy so I had to defend myself because he was accusing me wrong. He caused his own prison sentence”, he disclosed.
