Secretary to the Osabu-Ayiku Wulomo, John Adjetey Kommey suspects arson; allegedly undertaken by persons involved in a chieftaincy dispute.

He explained to JoyNews that there was a clash between two Teshie groups; the Mantse and Shikitele after they had embarked on a fishing expedition to mark the harvesting of fish.

According to him, there were gunshots that led to an individual being shot in the leg.

He alleged that the Mantse group proceeded to the family houses of the rival group and burnt two funeral parlours to the ground.

“On their way from the fishing expedition, the Mantse group started pelting stones at the other group and they also retaliated with gunshots.

“Unfortunately, one person was shot in the leg. The Mantse group then proceeded to some of the family houses in the Tseiwe quarter. Two funeral parlours were burnt and they proceeded to the family house and they burnt that family house too,” he narrated.
