Sunyani, Sept 02, GNA – Mrs Evelyn Ama
Kumi-Richardson, the Bono Regional Minister has appealed for compensation for
the affected families of the communal clash between residents of
Drobo-Japekrom, Jaman South Municipality in the region early this year.

She hinted the compensation package would
bring absolute peace between and among victims’ families of both sides of the
incident.

Mrs Kumi-Richardson made the appeal when Mr.
Ambrose Dery, the Interior Minister paid a courtesy call on her at the Regional
Coordinating Council on Monday in Sunyani.

The Interior Minister met the Regional
Minister and the members of the Regional Security Council for “internal
security brief” to commence the former’s two-day working visit to the
region.     

As part of the itinerary, the Interior
Minister met the Regional Peace Council and visited the regional offices of the
National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and the Narcotic Control
Board for staff interaction and the respective regional headquarters’ of the
security services, also for interaction with officers and personnel. 

Mrs Kumi-Richardson expressed worry that
chieftaincy disputes and land litigation were major challenges impeding
peaceful progress of the region citing among others the disputes of Dokokyina
in the Banda District and that of Drobo-Japekrom and therefore called for
effective intervention for peace and safety to prevail.

Mr Dery assured the matters would be taken
up to the Presidency for the necessary interventions to ensure peace and
holistic development of the region.
