The police in Yendi fired a couple of warning shots to disperse a group of irate youth of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who took to the street to protest against the current Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Mr Walvis Hudu, for "his inability to move the development agenda of the area forward".

According to the police, the aggrieved youth defied an earlier police directive advising them not to go on demonstration for security reasons.

The aggrieved youth,in a 4-page petition signed jointly by its Youth Secretary , Mr Mohammed Shani Sayibu; the Youth Chairman, Mr.Mohammed Abdul-Somed and two other members of the youth
executive, entreated he President to consider their plea for the removal of the MCE.

They claimed that the leadership style of the MCE had created disharmony between him and the party executives and had also "created cracks within the ranks and file of the party".

Briefing the Daily Graphic on the situation in Tamale, the Regional police Commander, Assistant Commissioner of police (ACP), Angwubutoge Awuni, indicated that three days ago, a group of NDC youth wrote a letter to the police to embark on a demonstration on september 15, 2009.

He intimated that the police had also received another message from another group of youth stating that they also wanted to embark on a similar demonstration to counter the proposed protest of the former group.

The commander further explained thaton Monday morning, September 12, the police received a report that a group of red-band wearring youth had converge on the premises of the NDC office at Yendi, ostensibly to go on demonstration.

According to ACP Awuni, the youth wereearlier told that the police could not provide security for the two groups at the same time, and that their demeanour was a threat to the prevailing peace in the area,hence the police had to fire blank ammunition to disperse them.

The commander however,stressed that clam had now returned to the town and the situation was under control.
