The roadblock has been in place since this morning and has caused disruptions to the flow of traffic into the nearby area of Sabama leading up to the Manu Autoport area.
Police are on hand to monitor the situation as elders meet with them and Eda Ranu officials.
For now the situation is quiet with youth just diverting traffic back out from the main road area.
Metropolitan police commander, Perou N’Dranou, has indicated that mediation will be used to facilitate for a positive outcome for both parties.
More to come.
