In spite of the relative calm in the Bawku Municipality, the Ministry of the Interior has re-imposed the curfew on the municipality and maintained the period from 10p.m. to 4 a.m. each day.

The re-imposition of the curfew is on the advice of the Upper East Regional Security Council (REGSEC).

A statement issued in Accra yesterday, and signed by Nana Obiri Boahen, a Minister of State, said the re-imposition of the curfew is to consolidate the peace in and around Bawku and its environs.

It said the ban on the carrying of firearms in the municipality remains in force and any person found with arms or ammunition will be arrested and prosecuted.

Peace returned to the Bawku Municipality after the President met with both the Mamprusis and Kusasis in efforts at ensuring permanent peace in the area.

'The government continues to appeal to all factions to exercise the maximum restraint and partner it to bring permanent peace in the area', the statement said.
