Dr. Benjamin Otchere-Ankrah, a Governance expert, has rebuked the youth in Nima and Mamobi who engaged in a violent clash on Tuesday.
A timely intervention by the Police on Tuesday afternoon prevented the incident from escalating into a bloodbath.
However, some persons sustained fatal injuries as a result of the clash with four persons reported dead.
Nine suspects have been arrested so far and are assisting with Police investigations into the incident.
Touching on the clash during Peace FM's morning show ''Kokrokoo'', Dr. Benjamin Otchere-Ankrah wondered why the youth should be fighting each other.
He dreaded this incident may reflect the behavior of the youth in Ghana today, thus called on the nation's leaders to sensitize them about the repercussions of resorting to violence in addressing conflicts.
''The leaders in Ghana must rise and talk to the youth. The youth are getting out of hand, particularly those doing drugs.''
Dr. Otchere-Ankrah applauded the leadership of the IGP Dr. George Dampare for swiftly intervening in the situation and causing the arrest of some of the suspects.
He charged the Police to ''arrest them all and when they have been arrested, let no elder go and beg on their behalf''.
