The Widi Clan and family of Widaan Atongi-Mbil of Worikamabo and Bawku, wish to express our gratitude to the Zug-ran, Naaba Asigri Abugrago Azoka II and the Security agencies in Bawku (the Ghana Police Service, Ghana Armed Forces and the National Intelligence Bureau) for the leadership exhibited following the gruesome murder of our beloved son; MOHAMMED SANDOW FUSEINI.

Fuseini’s life was snuffed out on Thursday, July 29, 2021 while working for his daily bread on the streets of Sabongari. He had no hand or involvement whatsoever in the land dispute which is reported to have triggered the shooting by these heartless individuals.
