The security team has taken over the entrance to the place.

“Agbogbloshie is now uncomfortable for the dwellers,” TV3’s Stanley Blewu reported from the scene of the incident.

“Theyhave killed three kokombas. The kokombas are promising war tonight,” our correspondent reported.

An eyewitness, Nana Yaw, told Onua FM’s Ghana Dadwene that all the three people were stabbed.
