Gunshots at Bunkrugu; houses burnt

There are reports of gunshots and burning of houses in the Bunkrugu district of the Northern Region, Wednesday evening.

A police constable with the Bunkrugu Police told over four houses have been burnt so far in the renewed clashes between two factions- the Jafouk and the Jamon.

No casualty has yet been reported.
The Jamon family is challenging the legitimacy of the chief of Bunkrugu who is with the Jafouk family.

The case has been in court for eight years but that has not stopped the factions from going at each other from time to time.

It is not clear what triggered Wednesday night’s skirmishes but the police constable reports the conflict may degenerate.

Already scores of people are fleeing the area as police try to restore calm.
