At least nine persons sustained gunshot wounds in clashes between two illegal mining groups at Wa in the Upper West Region.

The clashes, which occurred last night at about 8:30 pm, left several others with cutlass wounds.

The leader of “Jamaican Youth”, one of the groups, Alhaji Abdullah Iddriss, told journalists that he received a call from one of his boys that, “they were being attacked at Zongo.”

“When I got there, five of my boys were in a pool of blood as a result of the gun and cutlass wounds they received. So we took them to the hospital. We were there, and some others were brought.”

He said the matter had been reported to the Upper West Regional police command.

Our checks at the Upper West Regional Hospital revealed that a total of 21 people were sent to the facility for medical attention.

Sixteen of them were however discharged, leaving five who are in critical condition.

The leadership of “Z-town,” the group alleged to have initiated the attack were tight-lipped over the matter.

Friday’s incident was the second after members of Jamaican Youth, in 2015, beat and stripped naked Ibrahim Salih, one of the leaders of Z-town.

Meanwhile, the Upper West Regional Police are investigating the matter.
