“Meanwhile, there is a total ban on all persons in the afore-mentioned communities and their environs from carrying arms, ammunition or any offensive weapons and any persons found with any arms or ammunition will be arrested and prosecuted,” the statement said.

Mr Dery had earlier on October 18 2020 imposed a curfew on Drobo, Japekrom and six other communities in the Jaman South Municipal area.

This followed clashes which resulted in the death of two people and injuring 14 others through gunshots.

Residents of the area said they were living in fear because of the renewed tension between Drobo and Japekrom.
