Military storms Nalerigu to arrest king of Mamprugu, New Bawku Naba; as Youth vandalized NPP office, Police station

Military men deployed to Nalerigu to arrest a purportedly enskinned Bawku Naba and the Overlord of Mamprugu clashed with the youth earlier in the dawn.

The attempt by the soldiers followed a warrant issued by a High Court in Bolgatanga for the arrest of the two traditional leaders for their involvement in the enskinment of a new chief on Wednesday.

In a press release issued by the Information Ministry on February 15, the government said the act is a national security violation.

“The Government condemns developments in Nalerigu today February 15, 2023, concerning the purported enskinment of a new Bawku Naba as illegal and a threat to National Security,” excerpts of the statement signed by Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said.

The statement continued that “Naba Asigri Abugrago Azoka II is the Bawku Naba, duly gazetted and a member of the National and Upper East Regional Houses of Chiefs.”

It has, therefore, directed the security agencies to arrest and prosecute any other person who holds himself out as a Bawku Naba.

But the development led the youth to vandalised the police station in the area and a New Patriotic Party (NPP) office.
