Reports reaching The Enquirer indicates that the Dansoman police have foiled an imminent clash between two factions at Ashalaja, a community near Amasaman, in the Ga West Municipal Assembly in the Greater Accra Region.

According to the reports, there has a chieftaincy dispute in the Ashalaja community for some time now between the incumbent chief, Nii Akwannor III, and a certain Obeney Tawiah, alias Nii Akwannor IV, who claims he is the substantive chief.

The crime officer of the Dansoman District police headquarters, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Maama Arhin, who briefed The Enquirer last Friday, said they had information that Obeney Tawiah had organized a group of 10 young men who posed as land guards to attack the palace of Nii Akwano II. He stated that upon receiving the information, they quickly dispatched a police patrol to the residence of Obeney Tawiah.

“Upon seeing our police patrol vehicle, the 10 men took to their heels, but two were apprehended, while Obeney Tawiah was nowhere to be found,” he said. He gave the names of the two men as Albert Doku, 24, and Seidu Salifu, 35.

He said they have mounted a search for Obeney Tawiah for interrogation and subsequent arraignment before court. DSP Arhin stated that his men were able to retrieve one fully loaded single barrel gun, six machetes, two daggers, six wrappers of Indian hemp, popularly known as ‘wee’ and eight mobile phones.
He noted that they are preparing the docket of the two men and they will be put before court, adding that the two men have been granted police bail.

DSP Arhin used the opportunity to appeal to people to resort to the right procedure in resolving their litigations rather than turning to violence.
