The Northern Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has said it will use all legitimate means to crush those fanning the Chereponi conflict.

Two people were killed in renewed clashes between the Chokosis and Kokombas in the newly-created North East Region, which is still being superintended by the authorities of the Northern Region until a substantive North East Regional administration is put together.

Twenty communities have been ravaged with over 40 houses torched while scores of locals have sustained various degrees of injury.

Several inhabitants, mostly children and women, have also fled the ravaged communities.

A joint police-military team has been stationed in the Chereponi district to ensure peace and calm.

In a statement, REGSEC said it “wishes to sound a strong warning to all those fomenting trouble in the area that the security agencies are ready to deal decisively with all such persons”.

“Security agencies will enforce the law and ensure that all perpetrators of any form of crime in the area will be made to face the full rigours of the law.

“No person will get away with any crime committed in the area.”

Meanwhile, REGSEC has called on the leaders of the feuding factions to cease fire.

“REGSEC wishes to call on individuals in leadership positions from the area, government and non-state, youth groups and opinion leaders to bring their influence to bear, by engaging their people to lay down their arms and allow peace to prevail.

“REGSEC wishes to assure people of the area and their environs that security agencies are in control of the situation and the operation of all is required to achieve the desired peace in the area”, the statement added.
