The statement urged chiefs, opinion leaders, the youth and people of the area to exercise restraint in the face of the challenges confronting them and use non-violent means to channel their energies into ensuring peace to the area.
It said, meanwhile, there was a total ban all persons in the Bimbilla Township and surrounding areas from carrying arms, ammunition or any offensive weapons and any person found with any arms or ammunition will be arrested and prosecuted.
