Police in Navrongo have arrested 10 people over renewed clashes in Kassena-Nankana in the Upper East Region.

Six people have been killed and 12 houses torched after some residents from the Doba and Kantiga communities clashed over a parcel of land intended for a police station.

Speaking to Starr News Navrongo Municipal Police Commander, DSP Francis Agyare said the 10 suspects are currently assisting the police with investigations adding that security has been beefed in the two communities to maintain calm.

“The conflict between the two factions is land litigation. The renovation of an existing building into a police station to mitigate the frequent robbery on the people of the place caused the chaos,” he told Starr News.

” For now we have arrested 10 suspects and we have also retrieved a lot of second barrel shut guns and cartridges from them. For now, we are on the grounds maintaining peace so peace is prevailing,” DSP Agyare added.
