Member of Parliament for Kpandai Constituency, Daniel Nsala Wakpal has advised the youth of Konkomba and Dagombas who have engaged in warmongering voice clips circulation to desist from the act.

He said this on Radio Tamale’s Tudu Yeligbahira today, November 10, when he was speaking on the recent visit to the Yaa-Naa’s palace led by the MP for Binbila, who doubles as Minister for Defence, Dominic Haruna Nitiwul yesterday following concerns of stakeholders over the unknown voice recordings.

Mr. Daniel Nsala stated that those behind the acts are ignorant, and do not know consequences of the actions, calling on them to channel their precious time in fighting poverty, describing it as a “common enemy” to both tribes.

He therefore emphasized that Dagombas and Konkombas have so much in common, and should not allow self-centered persons to destroy the bond that holds them together after the 1994 incident that claimed several lives and destroyed properties.

“Some of us witnessed the 1994 war between Dagombas and Konkombas. It was terrible. And do not pray that we get back to those days. What we must all fight today is poverty. We can continue to kill ourselves”, he told the host of Tudu Yeligbahira.

On his part, President of Konkomba Youth Association (KOYA), Titus Jawol agreed with the MP, stressing that the visit to the Gbewaa palace was timely and the two (2) tribes must use their influence to strengthen the good relationship between them.

Minister for Defence Dominic Nitiwul, who led a government delegation including some MPs from the Northern Region to the Gbewaa palace in Yendi following some social media comments of a possible Konkomba, Dagomba and Nanumba conflict, described the information as malicious and treacherous, 3news published.

He revealed that government through the National Security Ministry and other security operatives are tracking down the perpetrators of such information.

“We are tracking those people peddling such war mongering information to raise tension and I assure you we will deal with them.”

He added, “Konkombas, Dagombas and Nanumbas are brothers and have lived peacefully over the years and so any attempt to distract the peace among these people will be fiercely resisted.”

Mr. Nitiwul warned that “henceforth, anybody or group of person’s whose publications, discussions or commentary on the subject matter will seek to influence a possible conflict will be severely dealt with”.

He charged all metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives (MMDCEs) in the Region to sensitize their people on the need to live peacefully.

The Yaa-Naa, Abukari Mahama II, on his part, applauded government for the intervention.

He is hopeful government will trace the perpetrators and make them face the full rigours of the law.
