The incident occurred at Omankorpe, a suburb of Old Ningo, when five police officers and the assault victims went to arrest the suspects.

They attacked the complainants two days prior to the attempted arrest by the police, leaving the Stool Priest of the Bantama Kabiaweh Clan, also of Old Ningo, Nene Ayitah, wounded.

The Stool Priest was later admitted to the Battor Catholic Hospital.

Narrating the incident, Bantama Kabiaweh explained that the Ningo Traditional Council had pronounced judgment in a matter between the two factions.

The judgment, however, went in favour of the party that was attacked and while they were jubilating on their way back home, they were attacked by the opposition faction with machetes, metals and clubs.

This led to the losing faction inflicting wounds on their rivals, which included Nene Ayitah, who is currently in critical condition.

Confirming the incident to Class News, Ningo Prampram District Police Commander, District Superintendent of Police (DSP) Mohammed Issah Cantona, said the suspects have been invited for questioning today, Monday, 24 August 2020.
