Calm is said to have return to Kona in the Sekyere South District of the Ashanti Region after five people sustained gunshot wounds in a chieftaincy conflict in the area. The queen mother of the town Nana Afua Abebrese Agyemang is said to have attempted to instool her son as the chief of Kona. The move met serious disapproval by the township which resulted in a clash. The residents accused a joint military and police from the Buffalo Unit as being behind the gun shots.
According to the District Chief Executive of Sekyere South Edward Ayarkwa, calm has since return to the town and the district Security Council will meet to find a solution to the chieftaincy disputes.
