We’re working to ensure that things in the two communities return to normal,” he said.

ASP Agyare also said police were processing suspects for court as soon as possible.

“Taking statements from 12 suspects is not a small thing so, we started Sunday morning and it’s still ongoing so if we are able to finish by Monday fine, if not, by Tuesday, December 15, we should put them before court.”

Mr. Agyare also stated that a proposal has been put before the Upper East Regional security council and when approved will stiffen the curfew in the area to avert the further occurrence of the unfortunate situation.
