Fifteen people are reported to have been wounded in a clash between supporters of the ruling New Patriotic Party and the opposition National Democratic Congress at James Town in Accra.

The supporters of the two dominant parties were embarking on a peacewalk when the chaos started. It is unclear what sparked the confusion.

The victims are currently receiving treatment at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. Both parties have reported the matter to the Accra Regional Police.

The Ashanti region which is the stronghold of the ruling party tops the number of hotspots in the police list.
