Seven suspects are in the grips of the Yendi Divisional Police Command over renewed communal clash between two Konkomba clans in Berib and Yiyamba in the Gushegu district.

The police have confirmed that six houses were burnt down as a result of the enskinment of two rival chiefs for the Berib community.


An eyewitness, Adam Shaibu claimed some locally manufactured weapons were retrieved from the combatants.

According to him, the Berib chief (name withheld) who was arrested together with the other suspects was detained at the Gushegu district police command.

The Yendi Police Divisional Commander, Chief Superintendent Joseph Allottey, confirmed the incident to Citi News.

“It is chieftaincy related, the information we had was that the Gushegu Naa gave kola to somebody to be enskinned as the Chief of Berib and another sub-chief also presented kola to someone at Yiyamba without the consent of the Gushegu Naa for the same skin and this prompted the attack,” Allotey explained.
