Four persons, including the Chief of Sayeegu, have been confirmed dead in a renewed land clash between the Sayeegu and Sambiluk communities, near Nakpanduri Township in the Bunkprugu/Yunyoo district of the Northern Region.
Chairman of the Northern Regional Security Council and Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed confirmed the situation.
A teacher, the Sayeegu chief’s brother, and the chief’s son are the other deceased, who died early hours of Sunday, April 30, 2017.
They were killed on their farmland over a parcel of land which has been a bone of contention between two competing Bimoba clans in the Nakpanduri enclave.
According to the Regional Minister, Salifu Saeed, the Regional Security Council has rapidly responded to the situation by sending reinforcements to the area to prevent any spillover.
He called for a ceasefire and urged the combatants to adopt dialogue as the panacea to resolve their grievances.
