Volta Caucus Dispatches Fact-Finding Mission To Anloga

By GNA
The Volta Caucus of Parliament has dispatched a fact-finding mission to Anloga to ascertain the situation on the ground following the outbreak of chieftaincy dispute and report to the House.
     
The delegation will among other things appeal to the fighting factions to exercise restraint and allow due process to prevail towards a peaceful resolution to the impasse.
     
Captain (rtd) George Nfojoh, Member of Parliament for Ho Central Consistuency, in a statement on the floor of the House, called on factions in the conflict to give peace a chance, and allow the authorities the opportunity to assess the situation and act in the interest of peace.
     
The re-ignition of the conflict, which has been simmering over the years, exploded into an open exchange of fire and live ammunition, so far resulting in the death of three civilians.
     
Several others have been wounded and a policeman abducted; and reports say vehicles have been dispatched to the scene and individuals are being arrested indiscriminately, with resultant raising of tension and further causing anxiety in Anloga.
     
Despite some control, the situation is still volatile and likely to explode beyond expectation,  Captain Nfojoh said.     
    
'We also wish to advise the security agencies to be fair but firm and even-handed and cat professionally in these trying moments,' the MP said.
