The swift intervention of the Nanumba North District Security Committee has averted a possible clash between Konkombas and Nanumbas over a protracted land dispute.

The long-standing feud between the two ethnic groups over the custodian of Nakpaa, a farming town in the Nanumba North District, was renewed last Tuesday when a group of Konkomba’s were reported to be planning an attack on some Nanumba’s in the area.

However, the DISEC intervened swiftly to arrest the four persons who were mentioned in connection with the planned attack. They have since been released to assist in investigations. Their names were not disclosed.

At the moment, the DISEC is holding a series of reconciliatory talks between the leadership of the two groups, which the District Chief Executive for the area, Mr. Salifu Seidu, described as fruitful. He added that the situation in the town was also calm.

The misunderstanding follows claims by the Konkombas that they will no longer play subservient roles to the Nanumbas who are said to be custodians of the land.

The Konkombas insist that they are also natives of the land of which they had stayed for generations and so they would no longer purchase any piece of land from the Nanambas.
