Police beef up security in Bolga as factions enskin chiefs

Police have beefed up security in Bolgatanga as different factions enskin two chiefs for the Upper East Regional capital.

The family of the late Chief is installing his successor in defiance of a Security Council order.

But another family which enskinned its Chief on Wednesday has also vowed to defy a court injunction against his outdooring.

A spokesperson for that family told Starr News that “they have not been informed of any police injunction stopping the outdooring”.

Earlier the Regional Crime Officer Superintendent Alex Asamoah Frimpong cautioned the various factions against provocative acts.

“We are aware that the various factions were planning to outdoor their own chief at the same time and we all know what can happen if this is allowed to stay.

“We realised that if we don’t step in to streamline things, the peace in the area will be breached.

“So with the regional security council and the police working together, we went to the court to secure a court order restraining Mr. Joseph Apakre not to outdoor himself as chief of Bolga,” he said.
