The Bunkprugu District Police Commander has called on indigenes of Bunkprugu and Yunyoo living outside the district to speak to their relatives residing in the area to stop the conflicts in the district.

In an interview with Accra-based Adom FM, Supt Stephen Delaport said they are tired of the several ‘conflicts and violence’ in the surrounding areas.

“Exactly, we are tired of conflicts over here, we are tired of violence over here…in Bunkprugu here, there is peace but there are too many conflicts in the other towns.”

“The onus lies on the opinion leaders and stakeholders to all come here and talk to their people, we are increasingly becoming frustrated…,” he said.

His comments follow the death of 4 persons and injury of 11 others after sporadic gunshots on Sunday, November 10 at Najong number 1, a community in the Bunkprugu/Yunyoo district of the Northern Region.

The cause of the gunshots is yet to be established though tension has heightened there.

The shootings occurred around 6:00 pm when the gunmen arrived on motorbikes as the traders were preparing to close for the day.

Supt Delaport said they are often shocked by the kind of sophisticated weapons that the citizens wield anytime there is conflict in the area.

“Investigations have shown that the people here use AK47 and G3 and other expensive weapons, we often wonder where they get those weapons from…intelligence gathered is that the citizens have an armoury where they hide their guns and go back for them anytime there is conflict.”

He said most police personnel refuse to transfer to the area due to the conflicts in the area.

“We are living in hell, when some police officers are transferred here, they don’t last, they are re-transferred…we all wish that some of our colleagues will be transferred from here because some have been here for longer times.”
