Asantehene intervenes in Bawku conflict

In order to end the protracted ethnic violence in the town of Bawku, the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II is working with various parties.

He said that residents of the border town would face a number of security risks, such as the arrival of radicals from Ghana’s northern neighbor Burkina Faso.

“To find a solution, I shall consult the Bawku Na Ba and the paramount chief of the Mamprugu people. I believe that what is occurring in Burkina Faso is a porous situation, and if we are not vigilant, Ghana’s border will also become porous.”

“We are unable to monitor what is taking place. For this reason, I’m requesting that the minister of national security provide adequate intelligence training to guard against any threats of terrorist strikes at the borders “said he.

The Overlord of the Mamprugu Traditional Area and Head of the North East Regional House of Chiefs, Naa Bohagu Mahami Sheriga, has been urged by President Nana Akufo-Addo to assist in bringing about long-term peace in Bawku.

He declared that the ongoing killings and violence in the traditional Bawku area are unacceptable and must stop.

As part of his tour in the North East Region, the president spoke in Nalerigu.

“Mahama was very important among the three eminent chiefs in giving us peace in Dagbon, and I know he will be important in ensuring that we achieve peace in Bawku,” the speaker said.

Recent unrest in Bawku has left a number of people injured, some of whom have died.
