Take Note Old Fadama banned from holding weddings, funerals, others

The ban comes on the back of last Tuesday’s violent clashes in the area that claimed a life and injured many.

A temporary ban has been placed on all forms of social gatherings at Old Fadama at Agbogbloshie in Accra.

This follows last Tuesday’s violent clashes in the area that claimed a life and injured many.

The Chairman of the Konkomba Yam Market, Mr Noah Kwame Upuin said the ban on social gatherings such as naming ceremonies, graduation of apprentices and launching of programmes was to ensure that some unscrupulous people did not take advantage of such gatherings to perpetrate more violence.

He said that the leadership of Old Fadama has already begun educating and sensitising the feuding factions in the clashes to use dialogue to resolve any impasse between the two.

As part of this, Mr Opuin, last Sunday, visited some churches and opinion leaders in the area and urged all aggrieved parties to resolve their differences.

Meanwhile, those who sustained injuries following the clashes have been treated and discharged. Three are still in the hospital needing special attention.

Persons who were also arrested for minor offences during police operations have been granted bail or released.

Others whose cases border on criminality are going through legal processes.
