Per a Starrfm.com.gh report, the vehicle was used in the operation to arrest Ujun, but the DCE was absent at that time.

Information available however suggests that efforts are being made by people in positions of power for the assemblyman to be released.

The minister of defence, Dominic Nitiwul, meanwhile led a top-notch delegation to the area for a crucial ceasefire engagement with the feuding locals.

The delegation includes both national and regional leaders of Anufors and Konkombas, as well as members of the Northern and North East regional security councils.

Clashes between the two tribes over land have intensified for almost a week now with nearly 30 people dead.
