The Volta Regional House of Chiefs has suspended the Paramount Chiefs and Queen Mothers of Nkonya and Alavanyo indefinitely for their failure to maintain peace between the two traditional areas.

The suspension comes on the back of a shooting incident at Nkonya on Wednesday, April 21, 2017.

Two persons have so far been reported dead with one other injured following the incident that occurred in a bush between the Nkonya and Alavanyo communities in the Volta Region.

The incident was said to have occurred at about 2 pm. Reports say some unknown assailants fired at five farmers from Nkonya-Ahinkro who were returning from their farm.

Nana Soglo Alloh IV, President of the House, told the Ghana News Agency that the Standing Committee of the House decided to sanction the chiefs following a meeting with the Regional Minister on Thursday.

He said the suspension is to ensure that the traditional leaders take responsibility for the actions of their subjects.

Meanwhile, police are yet to make any arrest but curfew hours on the two towns and their environs have been reviewed. The curfew starts from 11:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
