Seventeen persons have been arrested in connection with the renewed chieftaincy conflict that has claimed two lives in Bimbilla in the Northern Region.
The arrest was confirmed by the Northern Regional Police Commander, DCOP Ken Yeboah Friday morning.
Intermittent gunfires can however be heard from the outskirts of the town, Samuel Duodu reports.
Thursday’s gunfire exchange between the two factions is believed to have been triggered by an alleged enskinment of a sub Chief in Bimbilla.
The gun battle which travelled deep into the night claimed two lives while several houses were burnt down.
Those whose houses were burnt down are said to have sought for refuge at the local police station in Bimbilla.
