One person is feared dead while several others have been reported injured in clashes between two Dagomba clans at Yilo-Naayili in the Northern Region over land.

These clashes is said to usually occur in the dry season because most of the youth tend to be idle around that time.

Speaking on Citi Fm’s Eye Witness News program, the Assembly man for the Yilo –Nayili area Nkansah Twum indicated that the situation has been pending for ten years now.

According to him, the dispute is over a piece of land around the Tamale Airport which belongs to two leaders.

“During the rainy season it doesn’t occur since they go to the farms and work on their farms. This incident has resurfaced because one of the groups has decided to build on the land” he said.

He noted that there have been several calls from the assembly in a bid to resolve the issue but it has all proven futile.

“I am appealing to the two leaders to come together and settle the issue amicably so that peace can prevail” he added.

Meanwhile, the Police PRO for the Northern region ASP Ebenezer Tetteh has indicated that about twenty nine persons have been arrested following the clashes.

“It is our duty to conduct investigations so that all those who are linked to the incident are dealt with according to law” he said.

According to him, the group had been cautioned to resolve issues the right way rather than resorting to arms.

He called on the youth to “use the courts rather than arms when resolving issues.”
