A suburb of Tamale, Yong Dakpemyili, has witnessed another outbreak of violence that has left one person dead and several others wounded.
The local Assembly member, Abdul Wahab Dawuda, said that the attack on Saturday morning was a retaliation for the shooting that occurred on Thursday night.
The violence on Saturday resulted in the burning of about three houses. Some residents have escaped the community for safety.
The police have intervened to restore peace and order.
The police in the Northern Region are also looking into the previous shooting incident in the area.
The root cause of the violence is a longstanding dispute over chieftaincy between two brothers in the community.
The Assemblyman for the area, Abdul Wahab Dawuda, told Citi News that some people were injured when one side tried to perform some traditional activity. He said that the situation was calm for now, but he was unsure of what might happen next.
He said: “There were some gunshots as a result of two brothers feuding over a chieftaincy title. One side was to perform some particular traditional activity and some people sustained some injuries, but there is currently calm in the community, but we don’t know what may happen next.”
