REGSEC calls for calm in Savelugu
The Northern Regional Security Council(REGSEC) has warned the people of Savelugu that the law will not spare any person or group of persons who will disturb the current peace prevailing in the area.
The Northern Regional Minister, who is also the Chairman of REGSEC, Stephen Sumani Nayina gave the warning at a meeting with the regent of Savelugu and his elders on Tuesday. The meeting enabled the REGSEC to ascertain the cause of yesterday’s disturbances in the Savelugu Township.
According to Mr. Nayina, the region has suffered several setbacks over the years and would therefore not allow any person to disturb the current peace. He said no one has the right to take the law into his or her own hands.
Mr. Nayina asked the people to always report their cases to the Police when one finds him or herself in a dispute. He said Ghana is for all Ghanaians and law abiding citizens have nothing to fear. According to the Regional Minister, the law is there to protect each and everyone and therefore, it is wrong for one to take up arms against ones brother at the least provocation.
The Regional Police Commander ACP Angwubutoge Awuni said the incident at Savelugu is the second to occur in the area this year. He expressed worry that a misunderstanding over a twenty-five Ghana Cedi Mobile Phone could cause a conflict in the area.
The Regent, Mohammed Abdulai said he and his colleagues in Dagbon have been working hard to bring peace to the area, adding that, he will always ensure that there is peace. Meanwhile, four persons who were reported injured during the incident, have been treated and discharged from the Savelugu Hospital.
