The Northern Regional Police Command has denied media reports that there were renewed clashes over the weekend between Konkombas and Bimobas at Kpemali, a farming community near Nakpanduri in the Northern Region.
Another dead body suspected to be a Konkomba man was found at the outskirts of the Nakpanduri Township which was attributed to fresh violence in the area. The cause of death of the unidentified deceased which has brought the death toll to four is yet to be established.
