Biakoye DCE calls for review of Alavanyo-Nkonya curfew

The Ministry of the Interior on Friday (21 June) extended the existing curfew, which restricts movement within the designated areas between 6pm and 6am from Sunday (23 June)

The DCE for the Biakoye District, Millicent Kabuki Carboo, has urged the Interior Minister, Henry Quartey, to reconsider the recently renewed curfew imposed on the townships of Alavanyo and Nkonya.

The Ministry of the Interior on Friday (21 June) extended the existing curfew, which restricts movement within the designated areas between 6pm and 6am from Sunday (23 June).

The two townships have a long-standing boundary dispute dating back to 1923. However, Carboo expressed confusion regarding the justification for the latest curfew’s renewal, stating that there have been no recent conflicts in the area during her over two-year tenure as DCE.

“I don’t know whether this was based on misinformation or wrong data collection,” Carboo said in an exclusive interview with Asaase Radio.

“But I must say for a fact that having been the district chief executive for the past 30 months plus, there hasn’t been any conflict in this area.”

Kabo appealed to the Interior Minister to re-evaluate the decision. “We are enjoying relative calm,” she said.

“The people of Alavanyo are calling on us to do our side of our road and we are also expecting them to do their side of the road so there can be use of that road.”

“Our honourable minister for interior should kindly take a second look at it; just like I said, I don’t know how they arrived at this,” the Biakoye DCE added.
