Shooting at Anloga, not threat to peace- DCE

Ho, Feb. 4, GNA- Mr Kofi Ahiabor, Keta District Chief Executive (DCE) on Monday said the reported shooting incident at Anloga last Wednesday night has not posed any immediate threat to peace in the area. He told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on telephone that investigations were going on to identify those responsible and their intensions.

Mr Ahiabor said the police were on the trails of two people rumoured to be responsible for the shootings. He could not tell which of the two factions in the chieftaincy dispute was responsible for the shooting incident. A policeman and three others were killed last November during a standoff between the factions, resulting in the imposition of a curfew in the area.

Asked if the situation was not tense, Mr Ahiabor said people were going about their normal duties, but would not dismiss outright, the existence of some level of tension between the factions in the dispute.
