Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu has acknowledged that there have been instances of heightened tensions and conflicts between native communities and Fulani herdsmen who have settled in various communities across the region because of lapses by security agencies within the region.

Addressing the issue, Mr. Yakubu recognized that there may have been lapses in addressing the grievances of community members. In light of this, he has encouraged those who feel they have not received the desired justice to redirect their concerns to the Upper East Regional Council. The UERCC, he said, is available to provide support and seek redress for the community members’ grievances.

Mr. Yakubu shared these concerns when he spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show. 

“I am with the community on this, and as I have already told you, yes, there have been lapses. I have seen them myself. For example, on the Sherigu issue, I spoke to very prominent people, and they told me, look, this thing has become so because they have been complaining to the police all the time [and nothing has happened]. I have now told them that for things like these, they should also let the Regional Coordinating Council be aware so that we can be in the loop and also talk to the security agencies. If you don’t have justice, these are some of the things that happened,” he said. 

The Upper East Regional Minister went ahead to caution young people across the region to desist from taking actions into their own hands, as was witnessed recently.
