Man butchered in ‘reprisal attack’ at Agblogbloshie

One person is said to have been butchered in renewed clashes at Abgogbloshie in Accra Friday.

This comes after two people were killed in clashes between Konkombas and Dagombas at Agbogbloshie.

A third victim of the clashes, a pregnant woman, is said to be in critical condition. The renewed violent clashes between the two northern ethnic groups have left residents leaving in fear.

But in spite of tight security in the area, a Konkomba man has been butchered in an alleged reprisal attack by the Dagombas.

Chairman for Konkombas at Agbobloshie, Kwame Noah Opun confirmed this to Adom News.

He indicated that the victim rushed to his house in cold blood with cutlass wounds in an unprovoked attack.

Noah Opun feared the incident could generate into another clash thus called for police reinforcement to the area.
