Two persons have been killed while two others have sustained serious injuries at Bimbilla in the Northern Region following a chieftaincy conflict there.

A mother and her daughter were confirmed dead by police in the area while the injured have been rushed to hospital.


These follow the firing of gunshots in Bimbilla in the afternoon of Thursday February 9, 2017 confirmed by Northern Regional Police PRO ASP Ebenezer Tetteh.

The fire exchanges are in connection with a chieftaincy conflict.

A school in the area was shut down as a result of the unrest while a sub-chief’s house has been torched.

A joint security force comprising police and military men were deployed to the area to quell disturbances.

Minister of Defence and MP for the area Dominic Nitiwul has told Class News that he is dealing with the situation.

Bimbilla has recurrently been plagued with conflicts. It has, however, enjoyed relative peace in the past few years.

Meanwhile, a fresh curfew has been imposed in Bimbilla.
