The Upper East Regional Minister, Mark Woyongo, accompanied by the Member of Parliament for Talensi Nabdam Constituency, John Akologo Tia and the District Chief Executive for the area, Vivian Anafo has made a visit to two of the communities engaged in a recent clash over land issues in the area.
In efforts to broker peace into the violence which had generated between these two communities involved in the conflict in the district, the team yesterday met the opinion leaders from both sides to bring a lasting solution to the uproar which has erupted in the area.
The DCE for the area, Vivian Anafo in an interaction with Ghanadistricts.com on the issue confirmed that calm has currently returned to the place, as both sides have resolved to smoke the peace pipe by co-operating in the process initiated to end the violence.
The two communities Tindongo and Namoligo on Tuesday, June 15 were engaged in some clashes over misunderstanding in land issues, leaving 4 men dead, as 27 others have been detained in Police custody to assist in investigations.
However, the two communities have been reported as having close ties, as both areas are even under the jurisdiction of a common Assembly member as well as other similar political and cultural elements.
