The President of the Ga Traditional Council has intervened to de-escalate tension in the Dome Faase disturbances.
He’s thus appointed a body of traditional leaders led by the Gbese Mantse, Nii Ayibonte II, and other Chiefs within his jurisdiction to look into the issues and assist with the situation.
In a statement issued by the Ga-Mantse, Boni King Tackie Adama Latse II said: “The development is worrying and I wish to appeal to all to exercise restraint, while an amicable solution is found through a thorough investigation and historical facts and antecedents.”
Meanwhile, military personnel who stormed Dome Faase near Obom Domeabra in the Ga South Municipality after two of their colleagues had been assaulted by irate residents have vacated the town Thursday afternoon.
This is after they successfully retrieved two guns that had been seized by the residents.
The soldiers in their hundreds besieged the town on Tuesday after two soldiers from the Army Headquarters and the 64 Infantry Regiment were attacked on a land in dispute where they were on legitimate guard duty.
Scores of fear-stricken residents fled and turned the town into a ghost town following the clash that left two soldiers injured.
The locals have been complaining of harassment by the military personnel after over 50 people were arrested in a house-to-house search.
Kasapa FM’s Yaw Boagyan reports that even though the soldiers have left, the town remains quiet as the residents who fled are yet to return.
