Kokomba-Dagomba Clash: Interior Ministry Imposes Curfew

Written by  Nov 09, 2018
A former National Security Advisor under the late President Evans John Atta Mills, Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah, has reiterated that Ghanaians are angry with the poor leadership in the country and will only respond through violence if proper measures are not adopted. The former military officer told Kwame Tutu in an interview on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, there is rising level of anger in the country and the reactions that will follow will not be surprising. In his view, if we do not resolve the concerns by angry Ghanaians then God help us as a country. ‘’I am not surprised at the anger of Ghanaians. They will continue to get angry and respond with violence. If we do not resolve the challenges, then we will witness more violence in Ghana.’’ The Ministry of Interior in consultation with the Northern Regional Security Council has placed a curfew on Napkachie and its surrounding communities in the Yendi Municipality after the Kokomba Dagomba clash. One person was killed with two others severely injured after a clash between the two groups at Nakpachie in the Yendi Municipality. About five houses have been torched in the conflict, forcing residents to flee their homes to Yendi and other surrounding towns, Rainbow Radio’s Prince Kwame Tamakloe has reported. He said police and military personnel have been deployed to the area to maintain law and order. Narrating the incident on Nyankonton Mu Nsem, Prince Kwame Tamakloe said, a dispute ensued on Wednesday, 7 November 2018 when a drove of pigs of a Konkomba man trampled the maize farm of a Dagomba man. Enraged by the destruction, the Dagomba man shot and killed one of the pigs, sparking a conflagration between the two ethnic groups. With the aid of his kinsmen, the pig farmer tried to snatch the gun from the maize farmer. A Dagomba man’s leg was shot in the struggle. This led to a reprisal attack by the Dagombas. He added.
