The police administration in the Northern Region has denied media reports that there were clashes between Abudu and the Andani royal gates in Nanton.

Multiple media report on Saturday claimed heavy armed military and police forces have been deployed to Nanton following a clash between some chiefs of the Abudu and Andani royal families over the right to officiate an installation of a regent for the traditional Area.

But the Public Relations Officer of the Police in the region, Ebenezer Tetteh, said there was no clash between the two gates but admitted tensions were high.

He told Joy FM that the police only deployed police to the community following the tension, adding that the event came off successful without clashes.

He said: "There was no clash. What happened was that on Friday there was an enskinment of a Reagent at Nanton.

"The Chief of Nanton died some weeks ago and there was the need for a new Reagent to be enskinned. But some people in the town, not all the town folks, some people, a small section were not happy with the presence of certain chiefs so tension was brewing in the town and we had to swiftly act by sending police officers and there was also a military attachment and the programme ended successfully.

"The enskinment came on and there was no clash."

The police PRO added Nanton is very calm and that there is no special police reinforcement in the community.

He said: "We have men in Tamale, if there should be any problem in Nanton, we will respond swiftly. But as we speak, we don't have personnel who have been sent there effectively to be on the ground. I have to say that Nanton is very very calm."
