This was triggered after police shot three people from Adwumakasekese on Thursday, killing one Agya Akwasi Wusu over a feud between the chiefs of Adwuamakasekese and Bomfa over a land dispute.

The youth of Adwmakasekese attacked the township of Bomfa, allegedly in reaction to the death of their man Agya Wusu, alleging that the Bomfa chiefs had prompted the police to attack them, resulting in their brother’s death.
