The Upper East Regional Security Council(REGSEC) has convened a meeting with leaders of the feuding factions in Bawku to address the recent surge in violence that has claimed in the loss of 13 lives.
Speaking to JoyNews, he said the situation in Bawku was gradually returning to a state of normalcy until the recent surge in violence that exacerbated the situation.
Yakubu emphasised the imperative of engaging in peace talks to address the Bawku conflict, stressing that “this problem would have been resolved long ago if resolvable through violence.”
According to him, he strongly suspects that the killings in Bawku were caused by the Military deployed to the area.
The last time they did a similar thing like that and killed seven people, I went to CHRAJ and the matter is still before CHRAJ.
“Last month, CHRAJ wrote back to me saying that the soldiers denied totally that they had killed some people at the community
“I went back to Bawku and then I obtained some reports which I’m going to now forward to CHRAJ because even when they finished the act, they issued a statement saying that they neutralized those people,” he said.
