Two people have been sentenced to a total of 10 years imprisonment in connection with the Chokosis and Konkomba clash in the Chereponi and Saboba districts in the North East region.

In an interview with Joy News, the Northern Regional Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Yussif Tanko said a total of 17 people had been arrested so far to assist with investigations.

“About seven people were arrested from Saboba and the rest from parts of the area. Seven people have been taken to court so far with one released on bail with four remanded and two now jailed,” he stated.

According DSP Tanko, the Tamale High Court, presided over by Justice Richard Kogyapwa, sentenced the two identified as Lac Nanyom and Nablek Dzakpaki based on their own plea for possessing firearms and ammunition without lawful authority.

Meanwhile, DSP Tanko confirmed one community was attacked in the early hours of Friday but assured a reinforcement team had been sent to the place to ensure calm. The Defence Minister, Dominic Nitiwul is expected to meet opinion leaders on the way forward to resolve the issue.
