NE/R: Konkombas and Anafus smoke peace pipe in Chereponi

Konkombas and Anafus in the Chereponi District of the North East Region of Ghana have laid down their arsenals to bring to an end a long standing misunderstanding between the two groups.

The leadership of the two ethnic groups on Saturday September 7, 2019 met in Naduni community to offer sacrifices to the gods and ancestors to ensure that the new peace and tranquillity found in the region continues for eternity.

Speaking at the occasion, some selected stakeholders from Chereponi, Yunyoo, Bunkpurugu and Gushegu advised the youth to put an end to any form of conflict in the district. The youth were also advised to focus on the future in order to bring sustainable development to Chereponi, its environs and the newly created region.

The long-standing conflict broke out in January, 2019 over a piece of land which led to loss of lives and properties worth thousands of Ghana Cedis.

Leaders from both factions came together to sacrifice a lamb as a symbol of ending the conflict between the Konkombas and the Chokosis.
