Four of five alleged kidnappers have been shot dead at Busunu by some Fulani herdsmen in the west Gonja Municipal of the Savannah Region.
According to reports, these five men kidnapped a young Fulani girl yesterday at Kidendilenpa; a suburb of Busunu after which they demanded money as her ransom.
Some Fulani herdsmen of Busunu took matters into their hands to trace and rescue the young girl which led to an open fire as the alleged kidnappers were fully armed, thereby leading to the death of four out of five of the alleged kidnappers.
According to sources, the said case of kidnapping was not reported to the police until the shooting and killing of the kidnappers.
The Bodies of the deceased men have since been transported to the regional police headquarters, Damongo for further investigations.
