A clash between two groups at Nakpachei, a farming community near Yendi in the Northern Region on Thursday morning, has reportedly led to the death of one person.

A second person is reportedly in a critical condition whilst several others are also reportedly injured. 

A number of houses have also been torched in the violent clash that erupted Thursday morning, November 8, 2018.

Reports say a farmer shot and killed a pig which had destroyed his farm.

That angered the owner of the pig, who reportedly mobilised his friends and attacked the farmer.

During the confrontation and in an attempt to take the gun away from the farmer, it triggered and instantly killed one person and injured the others.

A source at the Northern Regional Police Command told Graphic Online that a joint military and police team have since been deployed from Yendi to the community to restore calm.
