Police in Bansang have arrested more than thirty people, including men, women and their suckling babies following a serious fight among the community members over the construction of a community Mosque.

Several people were injured in the fight, including the Bansang police. Saredebbo is in the Upper Fulladu district in Central River Region (CRR) South.

Sources say the village is divided into two groups over Alkalorship which now grew into difference. Our sources said one part of the community said the Mosque will be constructed by one of their relatives who is living in Spain because he has already started buying materials including tiles, while the other group said they had a sponsorship from the African Muslim Agency to build the Mosque but will not use the other gropupís money.

The group that said they have received sponsorship from the Africa Muslims Agency said they will have to demolish the old Mosque first before constructing a new one but the other group resisted against that, saying their family member has intended to build the Mosque and the other group refused.

The fight started among them when one of the groups started demolishing the Mosque.

The matter was reported to Bansang police station and officers were deployed to the community to keep the peace. While the police were securing one of the groups in the demolition of the old Mosque, the other group starte throwing stones at them, injuring some people, including one of the police officers.

One of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) officers was also attacked on a motor bike and was wounded.

By the time of going to press, police were said to have been arresting more people, wile the Police Intervention Unit (PIU) officers from Fatoto, Kakaur, Yorobeli Kunda (YBK) and Mansakonko camps joined to assist in addressing the matter. Sources say the community is divided by Alkalorship disagreement.
