The Interior Ministry has imposed curfew in the Northern Region town of Bunkprugu after fierce clashes on Sunday that left two people dead.
Curfew has been imposed on residents of Bunkpurugu in the Northern region following a deadly clash between two chieftaincy clans over the weekend.
Two people were killed on Sunday following a renewed clash between Bimoba ethnic groups.
The two, reportedly died from the clashes between the Jamong and the Jafog clans (both Bimobas).
About 20 houses were torched during the melee rendering several indigenes homeless.
The decision to impose the curfew follows recommendations by the Regional Security Council on ways to keep peace in the ethnic and chieftaincy clashes hotspot.
Interior Minister, Mark Woyongo, said the curfew was to "ensure that people don't go out in the night...Because there is no light, the lighting system is poor, people hide in the dark, and do the shooting. So if we impose the curfew, everybody is supposed to be indoors. Those who are found outside are likely to be shot by the security people."
He was confident the curfew would enable the security forces take control of the situation in the Northern Region town.
