Curfew hours reduced at Old Tafo

Officials from the National Peace Council and the National Chief Imam himself visited the area on Friday to calm tempers in the troubled community.


The curfew hours which began from 6pm to 6am will now begin from 8pm to 4am.

On Wednesday,some Muslim youth and loyalists of the Old Tafo Traditional Council clashed over a piece of land at the community’s cemetery.

The clashes claimed one life and injured several others and the situation forced REGSEC to impose a curfew on the area.

Also, property belonging to some churches and mosques in the area were destroyed.

REGSEC later announced on Thursday that it was imposing an indefinite curfew on the area following intelligence gathered on the ground.

Some 40 youth were arrested and placed in Police custody but they have since been screened.
