The Northern Regional Police Command has arrested four persons believed to be part of Kandahar Boys, a group affiliated to the New Patriotic Party (NPP), in connection with the attack on the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) on Monday.
A joint military and police team arrested the suspects in a swoop at the base of the Kandahar Boys.
Unconfirmed reports put the number of suspects arrested at six.
The Secretary of the Kandahar Boys, one Umar Farouk and other suspects, are currently in custody at the Northern Regional Police in Tamale.
The Regional Police Public Relations Officer (PRO), DSP Yusif Mohammed Tanko, who confirmed the arrest to DAILY GUIDE, said even though the four persons were arrested at the base of the group, they cannot confirm if they actually took part in the attack on the CEO on Monday.
He indicated that the suspects had given their statements to the police, adding that those found culpable would be prosecuted.
DSP Tanko disclosed that the CEO of TTH, Dr. David Kolbilla, had been informed of the arrest and would travel to the police station to identify them.
The Police PRO hinted that they stormed the house of the spokesperson of the group, who was absent at the time and instructed his parents to bring him to the police station for questioning.
He assured the general public that the police would do everything possible to bring the perpetrators to book.
