The mayor of the nearby major city of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu, declared a 6:00 am to 6:00 pm (0500 to 1700 GMT) curfew in the densely-populated town.
A local traditional chief of Tafo was attacked during the confrontations while dozens of others were injured with knives and clubs and needed hospital treatment.
Muslims and non-Muslims share a cemetery in the town. The clashes erupted when the Muslims accused the local chief of selling parts of the land allocated to them.
Hundreds of soldiers and police have been deployed in the town to restore peace.
