One person is reported dead with five others wounded following in following a shooting incident at Yendi.
The shooting was said to have started when the Chief of Sangnarigu was entering Yendi with his entourage ahead of the funeral of the late Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II.

The gunfire was reportedly preceded by the pelting of stones between Abudu and Andani groups.
The dead and wounded are all feared to be Abudus.
Two houses and a shed belonging to Abudus were also set ablaze.
Before the incident, preparations were far advanced at the Kampakoya Naa palace in Yendi for the commencement of the final funeral rites of the late overlord of Dagbon.
Alhaji Mugisu Sibaway, the Abudu youth President, told Citi News the Sangnari Naa’s entourage upon getting to where the Abudu youth were, opened fire on them killing one and injuring five.
Meanwhile, security has been able to contain the situation for now.
The funeral of the late Yaa-Naa Yakubu was expected to start on Thursday, but the incident has put it on hold.
Per the roadmap laid out by the Committee of Eminent Kings which mediated the chieftaincy dispute, the funeral of the late Yaa-Naa Yakubu Andani II was initially expected to start from January 4 to 18, 2019.
