"The Minister of the Interior has on the advice of the Northern Regional Security Council and by Executive Instrument reviewed the existing curfew hours for Bimbilla Township from 10:00pm to 4:00am to 6:00pm to 6:00am effective this Friday, January 12, 2018,” the Minister of Interior Ambrose Dery said in a statement issued on Friday.

It is currently unknown what may have triggered the attack, but many have linked it to the Chieftaincy disputes that have blighted the town in recent years.

Meanwhile, similar clashes in Bimbilla last year led to many casualties, with women and children losing their lives in the process.
