The Police have arrested seven suspects in connection with clashes that ensued in Nima, a suburb of Accra on Tuesday.

The law enforcement agency is also on a manhunt for ringleaders for the two gangs involved; Kumordzi and Bombo.

It comes on the back of a violent turf war between the youth of Nima and Maamobi which nearly led to bloodshed but for the intervention of the police.

A timely intervention by the Police on Tuesday afternoon averted what could have been bloodshed following a violent clash between the youth of Nima and Maamobi.

In videos widely circulated on social media, the youth in the adjoining Muslim communities are seen with clubs and cutlasses around 3:00 PM.

Following the incident, an uneasy calm has settled over the area.

Residents in the area say they live in fear of reprisal.
