Confirmed Dead In Chieftaincy Clashes In Oblogo


One person is reportedly dead in suspected chieftaincy clashes at Ogblogo near Weija in the Greater Accra Region. Witnesses say the violence started on Sunday afternoon when one of the disputed chiefs returned from exile.

Several residents fled the scene and it took the intervention of police personnel deployed to the area late Sunday afternoon to prevent the clashes from escalating. Greater Accra Police Public Relations Officer, Sergeant Kwabena Danso, who spoke to The Media on Sunday night, confirmed that one person was killed.

“One person is dead. I can confirm,” he said.

The body of the deceased, he said, has been deposited at the Police Hospital morgue. Though he could not confirm if the deceased is a Chief, Sergeant Kwabena Danso said enough police personnel are on the ground to ensure that law and order is maintained while investigations continue.
