Eight people have been arrested in connection with renewed clashed between Dorongo and Sokabisi communities in the Upper East region.
One of the four people who sustained machete injuries has been confirmed dead.
According to Citi News’ Upper East regional correspondent, Agana Bawa, the death of one of the victims nearly sparked another confusion in the area on Friday but through the intervention of the Police, calm has returned to the community.
The two communities are battling a case in court over a parcel of land. Agana Bawa mentioned that the case which was to be heard on Friday at the Bolgatanga Circuit Court did not come off due to the absence of both parties.
“The case was supposed to be heard today but following yesterday’s clashes, my checks at the court indicated that non of the representatives of the two communities appeared so the case was not heard”, he explained.
