The Awormefia sympathized with the people – both the traditional and Muslims - and thanked the Military and the Police for the matured manner in which they have handled the situation.
On his part, Torgbui Gabusu of the Gbi Traditional area partly blamed the police for the skirmishes in Hohoe adding, if they had responded to intelligence report the chaos would not have erupted.
He added that conflict is not the preserve of any particular group of people, hence the need for well-meaning citizens to constantly work towards peace and accelerated growth.
Volta Regional Correspondent Agbeko Ben Coffie told Joy News two men have been arrested in connection with the burning of houses in the municipality.
This was made known during the meeting with the MCE and the Volta Regional Police Commander DCOP Alex Bedie.
