Several people sustained injuries following the clash Several people sustained injuries following the clash

Five people have been left injured after supporters of the NDC and NPP clashed in the New Juaben municipality of the Eastern Region as they embarked on separate but simultaneous walks.

The parliamentary candidates for both parties led the respective health walks.

Supporters of both parties stoned each other and also vandalised cars nearby.

It is not clear how the violence started but police officers had to intervene and warned supporters of either party to call off their walk and go back home.

The clash comes exactly a week after a similar clash between the two parties in front of NPP flag bearer Nana Akufo-Addo’s Nima residence in Accra during a health walk.
