The death toll in the renewed Bimbilla clashes in Nanumba North District of the Northern Region, is now eight; according to the police.

Earlier, four persons were confirmed dead Thursday in a gunfight involving butchers and guards of the regent of Nanum but the death toll has increased. Read more Four killed, eight arrested in Bimbilla shooting

According to reports, some butchers at Bimbilla in the Nanumba North District have refused to recognise Yakubu Dasana Andani as the regent of the Nanumba Traditional Area and have subsequently refused to observe a custom which demands that butchers give a portion of their slaughter to the traditional ruler.

The custom, according to reports, has not been observed for some time now because the area has been involved in a protracted chieftaincy dispute which has led to the murder of the late paramount chief Naa Dasana Abdulai Andani.

The Public Relations Officer of the Northern Regional Police Command, Ebenezer Tetteh, said but for the swift intervention of the police, more casualties would have been recorded.

He added that submachine gun have been retrieved in the shooting.

Meanwhile, eleven people have been arrested in connection with the killings and clashes in Bimbilla in the Northern region.
