A clash between two youth groups at Fadama in Accra has resulted in the death of one person.

It is unclear what caused the clash but the Okaikoi North Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Boye Laryea has confirmed the incident.

The Okaikoi North Municipal Council has consequently gone ahead to suspend the 62nd Independence Day Celebrations in the municipality which was scheduled to take place at the Fadama Cluster of Schools, which is near the place where the incident happened.

In a statement, the Municipal Chief Executive explained that the suspension of the indece celebrations had become necessary due to the “simmering tensions between two youth factions which has already resulted in the death of one person.”

One faction said to be angry about the killing of their colleague stormed the area Tuesday evening apparently to revenge, and ended up destroying properties in the area.

The one who died was said to have been stabbed on Monday and later died on Tuesday whilst receiving medical treatment.

Friends of the deceased after the burial reportedly stormed the area Tuesday evening to avenge the death.

The rampaging youth according to reports forced many businesses in the area to close as well as forced other residents to stay indoors.

They reportedly arrived in the area with motorcycles, held sticks, cutlasses and guns and whipped people they came across in the streets and vandalised some shops.
