Tamale: 24 houses, motorbikes burnt to ashes in chieftaincy dispute

An eyewitness, Noah Nash Hoenyefia, told Starrfm.com.gh that the conflict has forced women and children to take refuge in nearby towns.

It is unclear what might have sparked the latest disturbances but sources, however, say one of the faction was performing funeral rites which the other faction said they did not have the legitimacy to do so.
