The Ghana Police Service has promised to reward anybody who will provide vital information that will lead to the arrest of leaders of the two rival gangs behind the Nima violence.
The gang leaders have been identified as Ali Awudu alias Bombon and Ibrahim Hussein alias Kumodzi.
According to the Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service, ACP Kwesi Ofori the security agency is working hard to reduce the activities of the gangs.
“Gangsterism of this height will not be accepted by the Ghana Police Service, and we will do whatever it takes to make sure we nip them in the bud and dismantle their network.”
“So far, police have said the tensions were the latest attempts to “lord over each other,” though the exact cause of Tuesday’s violence remains unknown. There have been occasions where they have had a lot of fights at the lower level without coming to the light,” ACP Ofori said.
In the past, he said, the gangs had been hauled before the Municipal Security Council.
“They also came to the Nima police station two years ago and were bonded,” ACP Ofori added.
Following the latest eruption of violence, police said three people were seriously wounded, but no fatalities have been recorded.
