Bono East REGSEC swiftly intervenes to prevent chieftaincy clash

Source The Ghana Report

The Bono East Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has swiftly intervened to avert a potentially violent chieftaincy clash in Portor, located within the Kintampo Municipality.

The region, notable for a series of conflicts, is now experiencing relative calm due to the intervention by the Bono East REGSEC.

Over the past week, Portor has experienced a tense atmosphere marked by sporadic gunshots and property destruction.

The unrest stemmed from the installation of a new chief by the Lukpewura, which faced strong opposition.

Although traditionally known as Moo/Nkoranza land in the Bono East region, Portor has a majority Gonja population.

This demographic detail has fueled longstanding claims by the Gonja Traditional Council to the custodianship of the area.

The recent clashes were ignited by the overlord of Gonja land installing a chief from one of the Gonja gates, leading to rebellion from another faction.

After meeting with the leaders of the two opposing factions in Techiman, the Bono East REGSEC moved to engage the youth and broader community in Portor to foster peace.

The REGSEC engaged with representatives from the two primary groups, the Chawchaw and Bawa families, and their supporters. They also inspected properties that had been destroyed and addressed an attempted assassination of one of the leaders.

It will be recalled that in 2016, one of the leaders was tragically shot dead while praying in a mosque.

The Bono East Minister, Kwasi Adu-Gyan, who led the team, called for a peaceful coexistence among the community members.

He also called on both factions to work towards harmony and mutual respect.

Additionally, the assembly member for the Portor East electoral area urged security personnel to adopt a firm and strict stance against perpetrators to maintain peace and order in the community.
