The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary candidate for Yapei-Kusawgu, Abu Kamara, has died in a car crash at Datoyili near Tamale.
The lawmaker was returning to Tamale after going to inspect some projects when the incident occurred on Friday night.
Reports say Mr Kamara crashed into an articulated truck and died on the spot. His special aid and one other also died.
His death comes a week after the NPP Member of Parliament for Mfantseman Ekow Quansah Hayford was killed by unidentified gunmen while returning from campaign last Friday dawn.
