Chaos has erupted at Tamale after Police clashed with some NDC youth of Moshie Zongo after the youth attempted to resist a court-backed eviction exercise Friday.

The clash, amidst gunshots, occurred when a team of 40 armed police personnel stormed the area to evict the party men who had erected a structure on a plot of land belonging to another resident, who after several efforts to get them out from the plot, sued them and won.


The land dispute between the men and the owner of the plot had dragged for nearly a decade until the Tamale Circuit court recently ruled in favour of the resident and ordered the NDC supporters who were occupying the place with some other people to vacate.

But the men defied the court and after several failed attempts to remove them from the place, the court issued another order to the police to evict them. However, today when the police entered the area with heavy duty machines to hack down the structure, a violent encounter ensued.

The NDC supporters claim the police came there with some supporters of the NPP and therefore they refused to allow the exercise to be undertaken because they believed the action was political. The men attacked the alleged supporters of the NPP in the presence of the police who after failed attempts to control the angry crowd fired shots copiously.
