Gbi Council soften stance on regalia ultimatum
The Gbi Traditional Council in Hohoe in the Volta Region has softened its stance on a 48 hour ultimatum given to Muslim youth to return stolen regalia or face the consequences.
The decision follows intervention from stakeholders including, the Regional Security Council, the National Chief Imam as well as the presidency.
The Gbi Traditional Council issued the ultimatum on Wednesday following attack by angry Muslim youth on the Palace of Tobge Gaabusu.
The youth destroyed properties belonging to Togbe Gaabusu and were alleged to have stolen regalia from the Palace.
They were protesting the exhumation of their Imam who was buried, Sunday.
Loyalists of Togbe Gaabusu in retaliation burnt shops and houses owned by Muslims. Two people were confirmed dead, with several thousands of people displaced in the ensuing clashes, leading to the imposition of a dusk-to-dawn curfew.
Peace brokers including the National Chief Imam, the Regional Security Council as well as the GOC of the Southern Command Brig General Martin Ahiaglo went to Hohoe to intervene but that did not stop the Gbi Traditional Council from issuing the ultimatum for the return of the regalia.
