One shot in renewed chieftaincy dispute at Ashalaja

file photoOne person has been shot at Ashalaja, near Amamasaman in the Ga West Municipality of the Greater Accra in what is believed to be a renewed chieftaincy dispute in the area.

The victim, who was shot through the nose, has been rushed to the Amasamam Government Hospital where he is receiving medical attention.

The town has currently been taken over by the Amasaman Police to maintain peace and protect lives and property.

Wednesday’s incident stems from a protracted chieftaincy dispute between the current chief and a de-stooled one, Onua News has gathered.

Brother of the victim, Paul Quarshie Tetteh, told Onua News, he and three other siblings were developing their land in the area when some people, who are known to be close associates of the de-stooled chief, stormed the area and started shooting.

He said one of his brothers was shot in the process, noting another one managed to ran from the area to report the incident to the Amasaman Police who quickly rushed to the scene.

No arrest has been made.
