The dusk to dawn curfew which was imposed on the Hohoe Township five months ago after violent clashes between indigenes and Muslim youth has been lifted.
Reports say Zongo residents were extremely happy when the curfew which was lifted on Friday saying they will be able to move freely within the town.
Speaking to Citi News
, the Assemblyman for the Gbi bla Zongo electoral area, Ziblim Bulhari said there have been isolated cases of attacks on the residents of the Zongo community in recent times, but they have pledged not to retaliate.
“So far things are moving well by God’s grace but there are small hindrances.
Nobody attacks them.
They [muslim youth] come to Zongo and do what they want to do and leave peacefully but whenever the Zongos go to their place, it’s different.
“In my presence, they stabbed two Zongo women who were selling their waakye in front of the Kumasi station.
The case has been reported to the police and we are waiting for the necessary action to be taken,” he added.
According to Mr.
Bulhari, the residents of the Zongo community have put in place disciplinary measures to serve as a deterrent to any resident who intends to fight the indigenes of the Hohoe township.
The latest Hohoe crisis was sparked by the exhumation of the remains of a local Chief Imam, Alhassan Saani .
The act which was allegedly committed on the instructions of the chief of the area provoked the clashes between Muslim youth to vandalize the Chief, Tobega Gabuga’s ( VI )palace.
This provoked further clashes between the indigenes and the Zongo youth
