The Minister for the Interior has, by executive instrument, renewed the curfew hours imposed on the Bawku Municipality and its environs in the Upper East Region from 8:00 pm to 5:00 am effective, Wednesday, May 11, 2022.
This comes after three persons were reportedly shot dead in what appears to be renewed clashes between some Kusasis and Mamprusis in the Old Kariama Market area of Nyatinga earlier in the week.
The government has called on the chiefs, elders, opinion leaders, youth and people of the area to exercise restraint in the face of the challenges confronting them as well as to use non-violent means to resolve their differences.
Meanwhile, there is a total ban on the carrying of weapons and ammunition in Bawku and its environs by all persons.
Anyone found with any arms or ammunition, according to the police, will be arrested and prosecuted.
