Alhaji Abuba Nasenmong, Paramount Chief of Bimoba in the Bunkpurugu-Yunyoo District of the Northern Region has vowed to hand over people fanning ethnic and chieftaincy conflicts in the area to the security agencies.

He said the traditional authorities were interested in efforts aimed at eradicating wide spread ignorance, diseases and poverty in the area instead of spending their time and resources on unprofitable conflicts.

Alhaji Nasenmong was speaking at a reception organised by Mr Bugri Naabu, a Konkomba Opinion Leader in Accra for Bimoba and Konkomba chiefs and opinion leaders, who were involved in a bloody ethnic conflict, September this year.

The two ethnic groups had been locked up in previous conflicts, which claimed a number lives and property.

Alhaji Nasenmong said some opinion leaders in the area were behind the conflicts and promised to expose them in the interest of peace, unity and development.

He said it was humiliating for his people to allow government to spend huge sums of money on security instead of development.

The Bimoba and Konkomba delegation met with President John Agyekum in Accra last week to formally announce to him their determination to bury the hatchet.

Mr Charles Bintin, Minister of State and Member of Parliament for Saboba, noted that he could only agree that lasting peace had returned to the two ethnic groups if they meet and dispassionately
trash all knotty issues that had led to previous conflicts.

Uborr Dalatu Labal II, Paramount Chief of Sanguli and a member of the National Reconciliation Commission, expressed joy that the two warring factions are now striving to live in peace.

Both Mr Dubik Mahama Yakubu, legal practitioner from the area and Mr Naabu asked the people to expose perpetrators of conflicts in the District to curtail their selfish agenda.
