The township of Bimbilla in the Northern Region remains under a dusk-to-dawn curfew in spite of an improvement of the security situation in the area.

The curfew was imposed to quell violence between chieftaincy factions in the town.

Northern Regional Minister, Boniface Abubaker Siddique told JOY News the state of emergency should remain in force to ensure complete calm as the factions continue to dialogue.

“Life is going on well, people are getting fused and integrated with each other so we believe within the shortest possible time I will be recommending that the curfew be lifted. The development on the ground has given us some assurance,” he said.

Alhaji Siddique says the Northern Regional House of Chiefs is playing an active role in efforts to resolve the Bimbilla chieftaincy dispute.

“As the political head of the regional, I have nothing to do with chieftaincy but the whole matter is with the Regional House of Chiefs. They have come out with their verdict. And I hope within the shortest possible time, by middle of March, I think the judicial committee will be meeting to come out with their results, so that one is left to the Regional House of Chiefs,” he said.
