Security personnel seize weapons at Bunkprugu

The security personnel deployed to the troubled town, Bunkprugu, in the Bunkprugu/Yunyoo District of the Northern Region, have seized two AK 47 rifles.

The Northern Regional Police Public Relation Officer, ASP Ebenezer Tetteh, who disclosed this to The Ghanaian Times in an interview, stated that the two rifles were found in two separate rooms.

ASP Tetteh said calm had returned to the town, following the arrival of the combined team of police and military personnel.

He said no fresh shooting incident had been recorded in the area since Thursday.

The PRO emphasised that the security personnel had intensified their patrols in the whole area, to prevent escalation of the violence there.

No arrest has been made in connection with the recent violence, but he said investigations were ongoing to apprehend all those behind it.

He appealed to the community to assist and cooperate with security to maintain peace.

It is recalled that three people died in the renewed clashes between Jamong and Jafok chieftaincy gates.

Many houses were said to have been completely burnt down in the disturbance, and personal belongings worth millions of Ghana cedis destroyed.
