Unidentified gunmen, on Friday night, attacked opposition MP for Sissala West in the Upper West Region, Mohammed Adama Sukparu, local media reported.
The incident occured at about 7:50 pm when the National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmaker was returning from a funeral he attended at Jefisi, reported CNR.
“It happened in my Constituency between Jeffisi and Bullu in the Upper West Region”, Mr Sukparu said.
” …all of a sudden some armed men, numbering about five stopped us and started firing into my car”, he had told the CNR in an interview. “My bodyguard returned fire and I saw one of them falling down. But the driver sped off, so we could not stop to know what happened to him”.
Mr Sukparu says all the other occupants of his vehicle escaped unhurt, adding he had lodged a complaint with the District Police Command.
