The Gbi Traditional Council is still adamant to have any kind of transactions with the Moslem community in Hohoe, in the Volta Region. This comes in view of the clash between the two communities about a month ago.
According to Alhaji Wan, spokesperson for the Moslem community in the area, he said the chiefs and the people of Gbi traditional area have alienated themselves from the Zongo community and thus not having any kind of interactions with them.
He further said that, “they have demarcated our Zongo community even those leaving near have been told to vacate the place and come into the Zongo community.”
He then added that, there is peace and calm in the area and that a press conference will be held today to address the disunity between the two communities.
This is after the national peace council on July 5 visited the area to discuss the way forward for a peaceful resolution as well as promote peaceful co-existence.
Meanwhile, residents who fled from Hohoe due to the clash are yet to return. According to the National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO), the incident left about six thousand and forty one townsmen especially Muslims fleeing to other neighboring communities.
