Yendi Municipal Security Council embarks on peace campaign

Kpasando (NR)- The Yendi Municipal Assembly Security Council has embarked on a nine-day peace campaign to dissuade any kind of conflict.


The campaign is covering 24 communities within four zones of the Municipality.


Some of the communities include; Kpasanado Napkachie, Adibo, Kulkpenduli, Gbungbaliga, Jagandoo, Yamshigu, Kumshegu, Zagbang, Kubongni, Montandoo, Kuni amongst others.


Alhaji Hammed Abubakar Yussif the Yendi Municipal Chief Executive who delivered the campaign advised them to help the security to fish out those miscreants and make them to face the law.


He warned the Youth not to take the law into their own hands by searching people with questionable characters when they see them in their communities.


Alhaji Hammed Abubakar said people in various communities were yearning for projects such as school buildings, boreholes, electricity, clinics, markets, and feeder roads amongst others and without peace there could not be development.


During contribution time, Chiefs and people they met in various communities appealed to Ya-Na Abukari II, and MUSEC to stop people who go on group hunting as that could lead to burning of farms.


They alleged that some of the group hunters sometimes beat up farmers who complained of their burnt foodstuffs.


Over a month ago, there were rumours of war between two major ethnic groups in the region that compelled the chiefs and government officials to visit Ya-Na Abukari II, King of Dagbon to iron out.


The campaign is therefore to reinforce what the King and government officials embarked on.
