The Interior Minister, Mr. Cletus Avoka, on Monday renewed the curfews imposed on the Bawku Municipality, the Gushegu township and their immediate environs with effect from March 16 for another week.
A statement signed by Mr. Avoka said the peace currently prevailing was a clear indication that the good people of Bawku Municipality and Gushegu township and their immediate environs were yearning for peace, which had eluded them for quite some time.
The curfew hours, according to the statement, remain unchanged from 12 midnight to 0400 hours each day.
The statement said it was hoped that the people in Bawku Municipality and Gushegu township and their immediate environs would appreciate the actions of government through the Vice President and reciprocate them by not indulging in any activities which undermined the peace that currently prevailed in the areas.
The statement reiterated that the ban on all persons in the Bawku Municipal area, as well as the Zabugu, Binduri, Pusiga, Zoasi and Gushegu townships and their environs from carrying arms, ammunitions and other offensive weapons, was still in force and any person found with any arms or ammunition would be arrested and prosecuted.
