Calm has returned to Madogo township following last week's tensions after three people were killed in Madogo township.

The three, two watchmen and a child, were killed on Thursday in attacks blamed on a land dispute involving two communities.

The killings are said to have begun at around 2am with the beheading of the two watchmen, who were guarding a shop.

The child was found dead after unknown gunmen opened fire, wounding several residents.

The incident sparked tension between members of the two communities living in the township amid threats of eviction.
