Speaking to Citi News, Malu Samuel an NPP polling station chairman said that their plea to the government to resolve the issue is their last resort until they take matters into their own hands.

According to him, it had become the norm of the day to see some of these people walking through the area with assault rifles.

He added there have also been reports of sexual harassment and assault in the community.

"The community leaders have organised a press conference against it before, but we are coming out because we think since we are [NPP] party members and the government in power is NPP, if they see their own party is complaining then they will be serious.”

“It is because of the law we are knocking on the door of government, if it were not the law, we would have stopped this thing once and for all. Because of the law, we are giving the government this ultimatum," Mr Samuel said.

In April last year, violent clashes broke out in the community which left several persons injured and 14 people arrested.

The post election violence started days after the NPP won the 2016 election, with many reports of state agencies being attacked and seized by supporters of the ruling party.

Many national stakeholders including the president have condemned the violence and the police service have been tasked handle the issues to their full capacity.
