The government has eased the curfew imposed on the Bawku Municipality and its environs citing continued peace and stability in the area. The curfew will now be from 12 midnight to 4.00 am instead of 10:00 pm to 4.00 am.

"In the light of the continued peace and stability in the Bawku Municipality, the Minister of the Interior has, on the advice of the Upper East Regional Security Council (REGSEC), by Executive Instrument, re-imposed the curfew on the Bawku Municipality, Zabzugu, Binduri, Pusiga, Zoosi and their environs with new curfew hours," a statement signed by Mr Kwamena Bartels, Minister of the Interior, said on Monday.

The statement commended the chiefs, elders, opinion leaders and all stakeholders in the Bawku Municipality and its environs for the improved security situation in the area.

The government again appealed to all the factions to help consolidate the peace by exercising maximum restraint and tolerance and to partner government to bring permanent peace to the area.

The statement said the government further believed that the reduction of the curfew hours would serve as an incentive to help maintain and consolidate further the peace in and around Bawku.

The government reminded the public that the ban on all persons in the Bawku Municipal Area, Zabugu, Binduri, Pusiga, Zoosi and Garu townships and their environs from carrying arms, ammunitions or any offensive weapon still remains in force, and any person found with any arms or ammunition would be arrested and prosecuted.
