An unknown assailant has shot and killed a woman and injured another in an attack in the Alavanyo town of Deme in the Hohoe Municipality of the Volta Region.

The deceased, Atta Yaw Rejoice, a woman in her early 40s, was returning from the farm when she was shot at the entrance to her house, according to eyewitnesses.

The incident occurred on Monday evening in the troubled area.

The Mental Health Authority (MHA) wants the Narcotics Control Board (NACOB) to be allowed to regulate the importation of tramadol into Ghana.

According to the Authority, the Narcotic Drugs Law must be amended by Parliament to allow NACOB to play a supervisory role of the  drug.

“Tramadol is a prescription drug and therefore licit, but the dosages we are seeing and hearing of must make tramadol necessarily come under the regulation of NACOB in terms of what can be allowed in the system.”
