A violent clash that erupted between two ethnic groups at Nanduni, a farming community in the Chereponi District in the Northern Region on Monday night, December 31, 2018 has reportedly led to the death of three persons.

Several persons have sustained severe gunshots and machete wounds while a number of houses and property have been set ablaze.

It has emerged that the incident that has resulted in residents fleeing to neighbouring Togo for safety because of the fear of reprisal attacks, is a renewed dispute between the Konkonba and Chekosi ethnic groups over land.

Graphic Online is learning that some of the residents have also sought refuge at the palace of the Chereponi Chief.
