Five persons were stabbed at a funeral in Apam after chaos erupted when some land guards arrived at the funeral grounds.
The land guards who are believed to have come from Ashaiman in Accra stormed the funeral sparking sparking tension between them and the youth of the town, a reporter of Accra based Kasapa FM reported.
A gun battle ensued after the police were called in to restore order. Vehicles and other properties were burnt in the melee.
The victims are currently receiving treatment at the Apam government hospital. Men of the community have reportedly gone into hiding fearing either arrest by the police and attack by the land guards.
The police seized the phone and camera of the Kasapa FM reporter and deleted pictures and videos of the incident on them.
