One of the suspects, who fired at security personnel, was shot in the thigh and is receiving treatment at the Chereponi Hospital under security guard.

A number of weapons have also been seized from the feuding factions.

According to the Public Relations Officer of the Northern Regional Police Command, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Mr Mohammed Yusif Tanko, the police and military team patrolling the communities have brought the situation under control.

The latest clashes between the two ethnic groups started last Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Northern Regional Peace Council (NPC) has called for a truce between the Konkombas and the Chokosis.
