Six persons have been confirmed dead, following an overnight clash between two factions after an open confrontation in a market between some persons.
Sources say after the open confrontation over an unknown issue had died down ,the persons involved left for their respective homes but late last night the Kokombas in the confrontation went to attack the Bimbolas, who also retaliated this morning.
This led to the loss of lives and the injuring of four people and distruction of property.
Security persons have since been dispatched to the area to controll the situation.
It is said the situation stems from the fact that since time in memorial the Kokombas expect the Bimbolas to pay homage to them which the later has refused.
They want them to do that as its claimed that they own the land.
