Source; Daily Graphic Ghana - The Northern Regional Chairman of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu, has waded into the controversy surrounding the relocation of residents of Old Fadama.

The Northern Regional Chairman in his submission, backed residents of Old Fadama who are opposed to moves by the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante Apeatu, to relocate them, following the clash between Konkombas and Dagombas at the Agbogbloshie Yam Market on Tuesday.

“Where should they be relocated to? They are here, in the market, selling their food products to the people of Ghana. They cannot relocate,” he stated firmly during a press briefing at Old Fadama after a visit to the area.

Bugri Naabu and the leaders of Old Fadama believes the police service should investigate the tensions and find a lasting solution to it instead of relocating the residents.

“They [the police] should speed up by arresting those people and go into the case to see the true picture of the case. But why relocate? No relocation will be done,” Bugri Naabu added.

Bugri Nabu assured residents of Old Fadama of government’s support to ensure lasting peace in the area and indicated government’s support to resolve and bring to justice perpetrators of the act.

The renewed clash between the Kokombas and the Dagombas has taken two lives and left several others injured.

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante Apeatu, who earlier on explained that, the relocation of the residence of Old fadama will help in policing the area, and guarantee some stability, following the clashes which is said to have deep-seated ethnic undertones.
