There was total chaos this afternoon at Dabokpa technical institute here in Tamale following clashes between Students and residence of the community over what could be described as land encroachment North Star news has gathered.
The school authorities are undertaking a project which included putting up a fence wall around the campus which has been met with fierce resistance. We understand some of the rounding houses have encroached the school land.
It took the intervention of the Tamale Police to fire warning shots in order to control reprisal attacks between the students and the residence.
There was an exchange of stones in the community, when the school came out today to start with the foundation of the construction.
But North Star news has made several advances on the Tamale Metro Education Directorate and we understand the Director of Education is unavailable to respond to the issue and also the Tamale metro assemble has declined to comment on the issue for now.
