The Aplaku district of the Ghana Presbyterian church has donated some items to its congregants in the Oshieye community.

Members of the Mount Zion Presby Church and other populace in the community flee their homes to find shelter elsewhere after a heated chieftaincy battle between two royal families in the community caused fear and commotion.

People were chased out of their homes, churches, schools and other social gatherings with guns and cutlasses for supporting one royal family against the other.

Church services and other activities in the community were halted as people vacated their homes.

Speaking at the event, Chairman of the Committee, Mr. Patrick Addison urged the congregants to desist from engaging in chieftaincy wars and remain neutral on such issues.

Let’s pray and fast to God to save us from this crises. The situation is controllable,  let’s all work together to find a solution. The youth should be caution, people can instigate you to start a fight meanwhile you don’t even know the root of the matter. As Christians, we don’t choose sides, let’s be neutral. Let’s  prevent war”.

A church member also advised his fellow Christians to live in peace and harmony with each other because the aftermath of war is not pleasing for any community or country.

Let’s take the war [in]  Sierra Leone, Liberia and others. Pregnant women, children, men were killed and the country was destroyed. Let’s all join together and prevent war”.

In an interview with pulse.com.gh, a mother recalled her ordeal where she had to quickly rush home from the market to look for her children when she heard the news of the clash between the two royal families.

“I sell meat at Mallam Market and I always leave early. When I heard the news, I had to come home and take my children to a safety place. When I got home, I didn’t find anybody everybody had run for their lives. Later I found them at Bortianor. The chieftaincy issue has been there for more than 20 years. The following day, I came home to get some things but I was prevented from entering the town, anybody who disobeyed orders was beaten with a cane. I sent my child to buy tomatoes and he was mercilessly beaten, his one eye got swollen and I had to rush him to the hospital".

Receiving the items on behalf of the Mount Zion congregation, Catechist Lucy thanked the districts for their assistance to improve their livelihood and get back on their feet after the unfortunate situation.
