Salaga violence: Seven suspects taken to Accra

The entire building was set ablaze around 5:00pm Tuesday[/caption] The seven suspects arrested in connection with the disturbances in Salaga in the East Gonja Municipality of the Northern Region have been taken to Accra for further investigation. TV3 gathered that the seven who were in the custody of the Northern Regional Police command were moved to Accra in the morning of Wednesday February 13, 2019. The suspects are believed to be among some angry youth who torched the NPP constituency office, leaving various party documents and property destroyed to protest the selection of Damongo as the regional capital for the newly created Savannah region. It is believed the decision to send the suspects to the national capital Accra might have been necessitated by the action of some angry youth who besieged the municipal police headquarters to demand the release of their fellows.
