Nkonya gone past war – DCE

Nkonya (V/R)- Madam Comfort Akorfa Atta, District Chief Executive of Biakoye in the Volta Region has said Nkonya had gone past inter tribal wars and invited investors to help develop the area.

“Things have changed and we are enjoying peace,” she said when Mr James Oppong-Boanuh, Deputy Inspector General of Police, visited troops stationed at the Alavanyo and Nkonya conflict zone.

Madam Atta said the major concern for the District now was its bad roads, with increasing armed robberies.

She commended the police and military in the area for helping control the crime situation and appealed for vehicles and accommodation for them.

Mr Oppong-Boanuh said his visit was to acquaint himself with operational situation of the troops at the peacekeeping regiment and assured them of plans to equip them with operational equipment.

He asked the troops to remain professional and continue to “stay away from trouble”.

The troops said the situation on the ground was calm and mentioned inadequate accommodation and lack of security lights at vantage points as their challenges.

The over a century land dispute between Nkonya and Alavanyo, characterised by intermittent killings has affected the socio-economic development of the communities.
