Heavily armed men reportedly ambushed a convoy of police personnel escorting traders from Bawku to Cinkase in Togo.
The attack occurred near the Gbewaa Training College on the road from Missiga to Pulmakom.
JoyNews sources within police have confirmed the incident, saying no police officer was harmed, although the police vehicle has been badly damaged.
Among the deceased are six women and three men.
