Bawkunaaba: Deal With The Perpetrators Drastically

The Bawkunaaba, Naaba Abugrago Azoka II, at a press conference has condemned the act and dissociated the paramountcy from what he described as barbaric, criminal and wicked, intended to derail the peace in Bawku. “I totally condemn the action of those who carried out the shooting of the Mamprusi taxi driver at Zongnaab in the suburb of Pusiga and equally condemn the subsequent acts of violence in Bawku town resulting in the reported death of some Kusasis. Whatever the motives, which are being investigated by the police, these actions are unfortunate and uncalled for and not sanctioned by my leadership. I therefore completely disassociate the paramountcy from these barbaric, criminal and wicked actions which have derailed the peace of Bawku,” he said.Naaba Azoka said he had asked the chief of Pusiga and the youth at Zongnaab, where the incident occurred, to cooperate fully with the security agencies to identify and arrest the perpetrators of the crime so that they would be made to face the full rigours of the law.“What has happened today is not and should not be linked in any way to the supposed chieftaincy issues between Kusasis and Mamprusis and it the perpetrators are identified and discovered to be Kusasis I hereby declare my support and full cooperation to the security agencies to deal with them drastically”, the Bawku Naaba said. He expressed his sympathy to the families of the bereaved and gun shot victims, on both sides of the incident.“I extend a hand of friendship to my Mamprusi brothers led by Elder Akalifa so that we can work together as brothers to restore peace back to Bawku Immediately,” he said.
