At least seven persons have reportedly been killed in a renewed chieftaincy clashes between Kusasis and Manprusis in Bawku in the Upper East region.
The clashes, which started on Saturday night, escalated through Sunday till Monday, December 19, 2022, causing a state of emergency to be placed in the Bawku township.
The Upper East Regional Peace Council has expressed concerns about the recurrence of the conflict in Bawku.
These concerns are well placed because like any other conflict, the Bawku dispute has been claiming lives, destroying property, and undermining peace and tranquility in the area, and for that matter the country.
The lack of peace and tranquillity makes residents and others travelling there for one reason or another fear for their lives, preventing everyone from going about their socioeconomic activities smoothly.
Is it not sad to hear, for example, the Ghana National Association of Teachers in May this year saying 100 of its members had been given the green light to flee the area due to the conflict there and that others would follow suit.
