At least 13 suspects have been arrested by the Police after eruption of violence at the Gbese Mantse Palace in Jamestown.
A team of Police Combat force deployed to the area by the Greater Accra Regional Police Command have taken over the enclave and managed to de-escalate violence.
Three people have been shot, while scores injured following a clash between the youth of Korle We clan at the Gbese Mantse Palace in Jamestown.
The skirmishes follows a decision by the Gbese Mantse Palace to commence rites in lifting the ban on drumming amd noise making.
Reports say the clashes stemmed from the sharp division over the legitimacy of the Chief performing those rites.
The Accra Regional Operations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, Chief Superintendent Kwesi Fori, told newsmen relative calm has been restored at Jamestown after Police intervention.
“Meanwhile, reinforcement has been made; we’ve arrested 13 suspected persons involved in the attack and as I speak to you they’ve been sent to the Regional Police Headquarters for detention and investigations. In addition, our personnel have been placed at vantage points to ensure Police authority. Furthermore I’ve also spoken to the Gbese Mantse and the Wulormor to ensure that there is peace in this community.
