Government is warning residents of Yendi in the Northern region to abide by a directive barring people from carrying arms, ammunition or any offensive or dangerous weapons, warning that anyone who contravenes the directive risks arrest and prosecution.
The move is aimed at consolidating the peace that has been restored in Dagbon following the performance of the final funeral rites of the two overlords of the Dagbon kingdom and the selection of a new Yaa Naa yesterday, Friday, January 18, 2019.
The warning was contained in a press release issued by the interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, announcing the imposition of a curfew in the Yendi township and its environs, yesterday.
‘’The imposition of the curfew is to forestall any violence as well as ensure the maintenance of law and order in Yendi and its environs’’ the release said.
