A 62-year-old woman has been shot dead in Alavanyo in the Volta Region.
Persons closed to the situation have blamed the incident which happened on Saturday on the protracted Nkonya-Alavanyo dispute.

A former Assemblyman for Alavanyo, Wisdom Kwami Amaldo who confirmed the incident to Citi News called for an end to the inhumane act.
“That is the attitude of our people from Nkonya this time around. They can just get anywhere and shoot. After the shooting, they went uphill and started firing so the security here were also exchanging fire with them,” he said.
Mr. Amaldo said calm has however been restored to the area.
He said the people of Alavanyo had no plans of retaliating but are furious over the development and will advise the people of Nkonya to cease the attacks.
Two persons from Nkonya were reported dead in April when some unidentified persons opened fire on them on their way from their farm between Nkonya and Alavanyo.
The dead were among five farmers from Nkonya-Ahinkro who were returning from their farm.
The three others managed to escape although one of them was left injured.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of the Interior has reviewed the curfew placed on the Nkonya and Alavanyo township.
The curfew hours are now between 8pm to 5.30am.
