The Interior Ministry has renewed the curfew in the Bunkprugu Township from 8pm to 6 am.

The curfew follows heightened tension between feuding factions in the area and will take effect from Tuesday, December 29, 2015.

A statement, signed by the Deputy Minister of Interior, James Agalga, announced the imposition of the curfew on the advice of the Northern Regional Security Council (NRCC) and admonished the residents of the area to find peaceful ways of resolving their issues.

The area has known no peace in the past few years due to clashes between the factions in the area which have resulted in several deaths and curfews.
