Clashes between some Zongo youths and indigenes at Ahwiaa in the Kwabre East district of the Ashanti region have left many residents injured.
In the fight that broke early Saturday morning, the feuding factions reportedly attacked each other with machetes and other fatal weapons.
Joy News’ Erastus Asare Donkor reports that the clashes came about after the indigenes attempted to prevent the Zongo youth from partaking in a dance party they had held on Friday evening.
In an effort to control the angry youth, the police fired warning shots which allegedly hit three of the young men, resulting in some injuries.
Others were also injured during the brawl. All the injured persons have, however, been sent to the hospital and are receiving treatment.
A number of the suspects have also been arrested by the police for their involvement in the clashes.
The main street in the town has been closed by police and a military back-up has been called in order to restore order.
