Junjung, a rural community in the Gushegu District of the Northern Region has been brought under a heavy military and police presence.

The security presence is to avert further attacks by Konkombas who earlier on engaged themselves in a fight over belongings left by the Fulanis who fled the vicinity fearing another Konkomba onslaught.


The Fulani herdsmen lost thirteen lives and scores injured following attacks from suspected Konkomba assailants in Gushegu some two weeks ego.

The unfortunate situation compelled many Fulanis to seek shelter in make-shift camps leaving their cattle and other belongings behind.

Following the fleeing of the nomads, some Konkomba indigenes besieged the Fulani communities to secure the left-over properties burning houses in the process and destroying food products under storage.

In an interview with Ghanadistricts the District Chief Executive for Gushegu Alhaji Seidu noted that the security presence will be sustained for some time in the affected area until calm returns.

He made a passionate appeal to all and sundry to donate relief items to enable the assembly properly cater for the displaced nomads and indicated that, the District Security Committee (DISEC) has started investigations to bring all culprits to book.
