Several vehicles, houses, and school properties in Atwima Agogo and Atwima Twedie have been vandalized following a communal clash in the early hours of New Year.

According to eyewitnesses, after a misunderstanding erupted between inhabitants of the two communities on Christmas Eve, some residents of Atwima Agogo allegedly attacked their counterparts from Atwima Twedie on New Year.

This resulted in the destruction of a number of vehicles, houses, and other belongings of Twedie residents.

While residents live in fear, the clash has adversely affected transport services within the vicinity.

During a visit to the area on Monday, transport operators feared using their vehicles to transport people from one community to the other.

The assembly member for Twedie electoral area, Augustine Osei, in a Citi News interview, called for security to be beefed up in the area.

For a driver who had his vehicle vandalized, Michael Kwaku Boateng, he wants the affected persons to be compensated.

Police sources have revealed that, so far, no arrests have been made as investigations continue.
