Fire has razed down the palace of the Teshie Chief Priest, also known as the Wulomo shrine on Thursday, August 5.
All property, including idols in the shrine located in the Greater Accra Region were burnt to ashes, according to information reaching Kasatintin.com.
More than 50 persons who reside in the shrine have also been rendered homeless.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, but Secretary to the Osabu-Ayiku Wulomo, John Adjetey Kommey, suspects arson, allegedly undertaken by persons involved in a chieftaincy dispute.
Adjetey Kommey claimed two Teshie groups– the Mantse and Shikitele– clashed after embarking on a fishing expedition to mark the harvesting of fish.
One person was shot in the leg during the commotion.
He told Adom FM in an interview monitored by Kasatintin.com that the Mantse group marched to the family houses of the rival group and burnt down two funeral parlours.
Giving detailed information about the clash, he said ‘On their way from the fishing expedition, the Mantse group started pelting stones against the other group and they also retaliated with gunshots.
‘Unfortunately, one person was shot in the leg. The Mantse group then proceeded to some of the family houses in the Tseiwe quarter. Two funeral parlours were burnt and they proceeded to the family house and they burnt that family house too’.
