Mohammed Chimsi, one of the contestants for the skin in the dispute, and his wife were among the three injured, and are receiving medical attention from the Tamale Teaching Hospital.

Sporadic gunshot exchanges in the community between the feuding sides allegedly forced some community members to desert the community for safety.

Police personnel detailed to the scene to bring calm were allegedly attacked by unknown fighters who fired uncontrollably at the men in uniform, although none of them sustained an injury at the time of filing this report.

The Northern Regional Police command has since deployed more personnel to the community to ensure the peace and safety of property.

The Yong Dakpema Yile community has been nursing a protracted dispute between two brothers over who is the rightful heir to the Yong skin.

The community for a long time has experienced protracted Chieftaincy conflict leading to fatal clashes and destruction of property.

Northern Regional Crime Officer, Superintendent Bernard Baba Ananga explained that the police had initiated investigations into the incident to establish the immediate cause of the renewed clash and to help factions get lasting solutions to the conflict.
