One person has been shot dead at Hohoe in the Volta Region where rampaging Muslim youth burnt a vehicle belonging to the paramount chief of the Gbi Traditional Area, Togbega Gabusu and vandalized his palace.

The action of the youth was triggered by the exhumation of their chief Imam buried Sunday and dumped on the Jasikan road.

Unhappy with the development, the youth attacked the palace of Togbega Gabusu, burnt his car and vandalised the whole palace.
