Tafo clashes: One arrested for sporadic shooting

One of the rampaging youth in the old Tafo confrontations has been arrested by the Police in Kumasi for embarking on sporadic shooting in the area Thursday morning.

The Old Tafo community has been placed under a curfew following clashes between some youth perceived to be Muslims and the traditional authorities in the area.

The locals and traditional authorities are reportedly fighting off attempts by the Muslims to fence off the cemetery in the area.

Meanwhile, some churches and a mosque have reportedly been attacked in the clashes.

It is unclear the name of the churches involved.

According to XYZ Ashanti regional correspondent Owoahene Addai Munukum on the Mid-Day News, reported that so far six church buildings and a Mosque have been burnt by the irate youth.

The Mayor of Kumasi Kojo Bonsu has announced that the dusk- to-dawn curfew imposed on the area has been extended to Monday.
