Youth and security personnel in Yendi have clashed in the town.

JOYNEWS sources in the town say the youth, alleged to be Abudu’s, attempted marching to the Old Gbewa Palace to occupy it.

The sources said the Security personnel guarding the Palace however prevented them and in the course of that, the sources say some gun battles ensued.

The reports suggest the clash started as youth from the Abudu royal family ventured into the old Gbawe palace ostensibly to perform the funeral rites for a former Dagbon King, Mahamadu Abdullai.

At least, ten residents of Yendi have called JOYNEWS to alert the country on the clashes.

The Northern regional minister, Mustapha Idris confirmed the clashes to JOYNEWS but he said he is yet to receive full briefing on the situation.

Alhaji Idris said the youth did not reach the Palace at all. He said the security personnel on guard at the Palace dispersed them.

He told JOYNEWS the situation is calm now but he cannot tell whether there were casualties or not.

He also could not confirm whether the youth fired at the security personnel on guard at the Palace saying he is yet to receive a full briefing.
