We shall repeat 2002 clashes - Abudus warn authorities

The ethnic conflict between the Andani and Abudu families at Dagbon has got much severe following stark threats by the Abudu Family of repeating the 2002 clashes which did not just claim the lives of hundreds of residents but also the Dagbon overlord, Yaa Naa Yakubu Andani.

The threats follows protests held by the Abudus  as they did call on President Mahama and the Asantehene-led committee of eminent persons demanding them to grant all Abudus access to the Gbewaa Palace. The family said the committee has been unfair towards them and is demanding access to the old Gbewaa Palace for the performance of the funeral rites of their late royal Naa Abudulai Mahamadu IV.
