A 30-member local task-force has been formed to assist the Chereponi District Security Committee (DISEC) solve a land dispute between the Konkombas and the Anufors in the Naduni community of the Northern Region.
The task-force is a representation of chiefs and leaders of youth groups of all tribes in the district.
According to the Chereponi District Chief Executive, Tahidu Abdul Razak, the task-force is mandated to proffer practical solutions to the impasse between the Konkombas and the Anufors battling over a parcel of farmland.
The DCE promised to remain neutral in handling the conflict to restore lasting peace in the Naduni community.
