Police probe Teshie clash over Homowo celebrations, nine arrested

 Police in Accra have begun investigations into a clash that occurred in the Teshie township and left one

person severely injured.

Three houses close to the Teshie Shrine were also torched in the process.

The incident occurred on Thursday [August 5, 2021], after some townsfolk embarked on a fishing expedition to mark the harvesting of fish as part of Homowo festival.

The Deputy PRO for the Accra Regional Police Command, Chief Superintendent Kwame Danso, told Citi News police patrols will continue in the area to avert possible reprisals, as the nine persons who have been arrested are assisting in investigations.

“Police presence is still high in the area, and we will continue to be high alert. We will be mounting checkpoints all in an attempt to ensure the area remains very calm and as we continue with our investigations, anybody that we suspect to be part of the incident will be arrested.”
