Former President John Mahama has decried the existence of rival chiefs in a number of Gonja communities.

He indicated the phenomenon has over the years affected the peace in these communities, retarding development.

Mr. Mahama was speaking at the 43rd annual congress of the Gonjaland Youth Association in Damango.

The Chiefs and people of Gonjaland in the yet to be out-doored Savanna Region have unanimously endorsed a proposal from the Overlord of the area, Yagbonwura Tutumba Boressa, to government, asking for Damongo, the West Gonja district capital, to be made administrative capital of the new region.

The Yagbonwura Tutumba Boresa I, Overlord of Gonjaland Traditional Council has announced the removal of Issahaku Abdulai Kant as chief of the Bole paramountcy, sparking renewed atmosphere of uncertainty in the small busy town already under a state of emergency following chieftaincy hostilities last year.

The Public Relations Officer for the Northern regional Ghana Police Command DSP Yussif Tanko has disclosed calm has been restored in Bole after the first day of curfew.

The Interior Ministry imposed a dusk to dawn curfew on Bole in the Northern Region following chieftaincy-related violence in the area which led to the death of two people on Sunday.
