The incident, which occurred just after midday also left four others with serious gunshot wounds, witnesses told Dailymailgh.com.
The gunmen launched the attack at the popular market as they robbed unsuspecting victims of their valuables –forcing many to flee for safety.
“They came with motorbikes and started firing indiscriminately,” one Abdulai Mohammed told Dailymailgh.com as he confirmed his brother Anur Hussein died in the process.
“So he was confirmed dead at the Manhyia Government Hospital,” Abdulai said.
