Minister for Northern Region, Hon. Salifu Saeed has revealed that young men involved in the Salaga disturbances will be dealt with according to law.
In a report YEN.com.gh sighted on Myjoyonline.com, Hon. Saeed, in an interview on the PM Express Show on Joy News, warned that those involved in the burning of Salaga South NPP office on Tuesday will be treated as culprits.
Hon. Saeed revealed that he will be holding a security meeting with members of the Northern Regional Security Council to discuss the disturbances.
On Tuesday, February 12, 2019, a video circulated on social media involving some young men burning the NPP office and pulling down NPP billboards.
Reports revealed that the youth who were from Salaga South took the fierce action to express their displeasure that Salaga was not made capital of the newly created Savannah Region.
Hon. Saeed who doubles as the caretaker Minister for both newly created regions; Savannah and North East condemned the action.
He noted that no amount of anger and disagreement should lead the youth of Salaga South to take such an action.
Hon. Saeed further noted that the irate youth could have expressed their displeasure in a manner that is peaceful than taking the law into the their own hands.
The minster described the situation as unfortunate and said he is trusting the security officers in the Northern Region to bring the situation under control.
Meanwhile, while the irate youth were pulling down bill boards and burning the NPP party office, some police men at the scene could not stop them.
The Fire Service who got to the scene was also not able to quench the ragging fire since the angry youth did not allow them.
The irate youth revealed before the disturbances that they were routing for Salaga to be capital of Savannah Region.
They said Salaga had been faithful and supportive to the NPP by voting for the then NPP MP aspirant, Salifu Adam Braimah to win in 2016.
The youth also noted that the choice of Damango which voted for a National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate Adam Mutawakilu, does not reward the peoples’ faith in the NPP.
Further information reveals that more police officers have been deployed to the area while investigations are underway.
