Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for Chereponi, Samuel Abdulai Jabanyite, had to cover his face with a handkerchief to hold back tears, after watching a Joy News documentary on the prolonged conflict in the North-East region.
The MP had watched several residents tell their stories of their limited options following another round of bloodshed that left two dead.
Watching the remains of her torched mud home, one woman said every single property her family had gathered have been burnt down including a mattress, roof and a bunch of cassava, which is her last hope of a decent meal.
