District Security Council of Bawku in the Upper East Region is in a meeting with Muslim clerics popularly called "Mallams" in the municipality.

The meeting is to ascertain the motivation behind the attack on the Bawku police station by some anger youth over the weekend.

The angry youth went to the station to demand the release of two Muslim clerics who had been invited by the police.

"We are going for a meeting with the security council. We are meeting the Mallams and the people from the community who came to attack us." Bawku Divisional police commander told Pulse.com.gh.

 According to Chief Superintendent Lovelace Kaledzi Tefutor the Muslim clerics were invited on Saturday afternoon to answer questions on why under age children were being used to beg for alms.

They were released on the same day, but the police station was attacked the following day by the youth who insisted the two Muslim clerics were being held in police cells.

 "They caused damage to our vehicle and our armory doors.

No arrests have been made so far and the police have denied reports that some people were injured.

"Nobody got injured if anybody got injured we would have caused the arrest of the person." He said

This is second time in two weeks angry youth have attacked police station. The fist was at Kwapong, community in the Brong Ahafo region.
