According to an Eyewitness, the two rival groups engaged in the cutlass fight on Friday night at about 8pm after some two members of the Jamaica youth camp, Ahmed Malik popularly known as Abinchi and Mohammed Abdul who were on a motor bike riding through the Zongo street got attacked by the Z-town boys and Ahmed Malik (Abinche) was beaten to pulp.
When the message reached the Jamaica youth camp, they equipped themselves and unleashed a reprisal attack on the Z-town camp leading to many sustaining cutlass wounds and one was subsequently shot but was rushed to the Wa regional hospital where he and the other injured persons numbering about seven, all members of the two groups are currently responding to treatment.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Upper West Regional Police Commander, ACP Peter A. Ndekugri when contacted confirmed the incident has vowed to go after the suspects who inflicted multiple cutlass wounds on each other.
However, the clash has put fear and panic among residents of Zongo and its environs and many shop operators were spotted closing their stores as they described the clash scene as not good for business operation for that night.
Though calm has been restored, but no arrest has been made yet. The police has since commenced an investigation in to the matter. The two rival groups have a long standing melee between them several years today.
