The Members of Parliament for Garu and Tempane are calling on the government to conduct a thorough investigation into the attack on civilians in their two constituencies.

In a press statement the MP for Garu, Albert Alalzuuga Akuka and MP for Tempane Lydia Akanvariba Adakudugu indicated that military officers entered their constituencies and engaged in actions that resulted in harm to the residents.

“It has come to our attention that a concerning incident occurred in our constituencies today, Sunday, 29th October, 2023 around dawn at 2:00 am. Military officers entered our constituencies and engaged in actions that resulted in harm to the residents.

“This unprovoked action by the Military on the innocent civilians is uncalled for and must be condemned by all peace loving people. Any form of violence and brutalities meted on citizens, especially when it is perpetrated by those who are supposed to serve and protect them must be condemned unequivocally,” the two MPs stated.

The continued: “We are deeply disturbed by these reports, especially considering the volatile nature of the area vis-a-vi the Bawku Conflict (Note that Garu and Tempane are part of the Bawku Traditional Area), and we are therefore actively seeking more information about the situation.”
