Implement committee’s recommendations on Chereponi clash – Peace Council

The National Peace Council has called for a swift implementation of the recommendations by the fact-finding committee on the Anuful/Konkomba conflict.

The committee was set up to provide an in-depth analysis on the causes of the violence.

Programmes Manager for the Northern Regional Peace Council, Nuhu Abukari emphasized the need for the recommendations in the committee’s report to be implemented.

“There was a fact finding committee organized by REGSEC and in partnership with the Regional Peace Council. The committee has submitted its report to the Minister of Interior and there are some recommendations in that particular fact-finding committee’s report so we want the recommendations of that report to be implemented.”

Mr. Abukari also asked the National Disaster Management organization (NADMO) and International Agencies to immediately extend humanitarian aid to affected households in the districts.

The violence at Chereponi was ignited last Friday when unknown assailants opened fire on Nawieku, a Chokosi community in the district, injuring one person.

The following day, 75 military personnel and 40 police officers were deployed to the area following reported reprisal attacks.

The reprisal attacks continued over the next few days as residents fled the area.

Citi News reports indicate that most villages within the district had been deserted.
