At least four persons are in critical condition after sustaining gunshot wounds in a renewed chieftaincy clash between two factions at Kpatinga in the Gusheigu District of the Northern region.

One of them is currently receiving treatment at the Tamale Teaching Hospital while the others are at the Gusheigu and Savelugu hospitals.

Armed military and police personnel have also been deployed to the area.

Supporters of two rival chiefs started shooting each other claiming legitimacy to the Kpatinga skin.

Both chiefs are holding themselves as rightful chiefs to the skin.

Information gathered by 3news.com indicated the confusion started when relatives of a deceased sub-chief visited the palace of one of the chiefs as part of the funeral processes.

Per their custom, relatives of a deceased sub-chief needed to go to the palace of the chief of the area for some rituals.

But reports said the visit by the family to the palace of one of the chiefs triggered supporters of the other chief rise against the move, creating a violent scene leading to the shooting of some persons.

No arrest has been made yet.
