Ghana Police Reacts To A Deadly Clash Between Nima and Mamobi Youth

The Ghana Police Service has taken to social media to speak about the deadly clash between Nima and Mamobi youth. A timely intervention by the Police on Tuesday afternoon averted what could have been bloodshed following a violent clash between the youth of Nima and Mamobi.

According to reports, four persons died from the clash, but the Police are yet to confirm this. In a Twitter post, hours after the clash hit social media, the Police said they have “strongly intervened” and brought the situation under control. The post added that the suspects are being pursued to face justice. Earlier, videos emerging on Twitter showed the youth in the adjoining Muslim communities with clubs and cutlasses.

In one of the videos, gunshots are heard while the youth are seen in other videos slashing each other with machetes. It is unclear what may have started the confusion between the Nima and Mamobi youth, but according to some Twitter posts, the fight was over a shisha.
