Three people are reported dead and several others injured in a crossfire between some soldiers and residents at Alavanyo in the Volta Region.

The town has seen recurrent conflicts over a parcel of land, which has led to the loss of several lives and destruction of property with attendant curfews.

The incident happened when the police went to Alavanyo Dzogbefe to arrest two suspects for possessing arms. The action by the police infuriated the youth of the area who attacked the officers, rescued the suspects and stole an AK-47 from the officers as well as three handcuffs.

A reinforced joint police-military force under the leadership of ASP Asifri, who is in charge of the Alavanyo Nkonya Peace Keeping unit stationed at Nkonya, returned to Alavanyo Dzogbefe and allegedly shot into the crowd, killing one Atta Kofi, a native of Alavanyo, and one Confidence, who is said to be a native of Anfoe Wodemaxe.

Seven more people are reported to have sustained various degrees of injury and are currently receiving treatment in Kpando.

The assemblyman for the area, Raymond Tsorkor confirmed the incident to Class News.
