A staff of the forestry commission has been shot by unknown assailants at Agomanya in the Eastern region.
The yet-to-be-identified staff, who is a forest guard, is being moved to the 37 military hospital in Accra after the Friday night shooting.
The development comes in the wake of the rising level of insecurity in the country following the unresolved target killings and kidnappings in recent times.
On Friday another girl identified as Augustina, a first year student of the Tarkwa Secondary School has also gone missing.
Augustina according to Empire News’ Emmanuel Ohene Gyan secured an exeat two days ago to visit her parents but never got home and has since not returned to her school.
It is, however, not known if Augustina has also been kidnapped.
Assistant Headteacher of the school, Isaac Sowah told Empire News that the matter has been reported to the Tarkwa Police Command and the family of the girl.
Mr. Sowah told Empire News that the school authorities are waiting for the Police to begin investigations into the incident.
This comes after another girl Maame Darkoa Anomah went missing since last week in Takoradi in the Western region.
Darkoa Anomah, 25, is said to have been kidnapped at West Tanokrom.
