For years now, there have been periodic clashes between the Muslims and Ashantis in Ahwia, a suburb of Kumasi the regional capital of Ashanti Region. It was, therefore, no news that these two group of people clashed once again in bloody conflict on Saturday, 3rd February 2018.

Last Saturday’s clash occurred because the Ashantis in Ahwia prevented the Zongo Youth in the same community from participating in a burial and funeral rites of a deceased lady.

The Zongo Youth retaliated. They both attacked themselves with matches, broken bottles, metals and other dangerous weapons.

Reacting to these periodic clashes, The District Chief Executive (DCE) of Kwabre East District where Ahwia is located attributed the violent clashes to the abuse of hard drugs by the youth in the Ahwia community.

Speaking to Kumasi-based Hello FM, District Chief Executive (DCE) of Kwabre East District, Nana Osei Bonsu said:

“Most of the youth in the district are using tramadol and other hard drugs which motivate them to commit crimes”

“They were even determined to kill everyone who comes their way even the police Commander and other security personnel dispatched to calm down the situation”, Nana Osei Bonsu said

“It was a pathetic scene and everyone was alarmed”, the DEC bemoaned the unfortunate situation.

The joint military and police personnel have since restored calm to the community while they investigate to bring the perpetrators to book.
