A parade to mark the Independence Day anniversary at Fadama was called off following a clash between two youth groups a day to the celebration.
The parade, which was to be held at the Fadama Cluster of Schools, was called last Tuesday, some hours before the beginning of the programme.
Some residents of the area, gripped by fear, stayed indoors in the early hours Wednesday, as they anticipated that there could be reprisal attacks.
That was because the members of the two youth groups had clashed at a spot near the Abeka public toilet and the market which are a few metres away from the Fadama Cluster of Schools where the parade was scheduled to take place.
Public Relations Officer of the Accra Regional Police Commander, DSP Afia Tenge, to the Daily Graphic that police received information that on March 4, a young man stabbed another young man near the Abeka public toilet following a scuffle between the two of them
The scuffle is said to have been precipitated by some misunderstanding between the two over a shisha.
She said one of the young men, identified as Nuhu Yakubu, alias Not Nice, allegedly stabbed Mohammed Kamal Tahiru, alias Bature, 34, in his collar bone and the left rib with a knife.
Some Good Samaritans took Tahiru to the Ridge Hospital, where he was admitted at the Intensive Care Unit but died around 2 am on March 5.
Tahiru, said to be a motorbike trader at Caprice, near the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange, was buried later in the day, in accordance with Islamic tradition.
Yakubu, who is suspected to be an illegal drug pusher, is on the run.
