The National Peace Council has linked ongoing mediation struggles aimed at controlling the tensions at Tafo, a Kumasi district, where Muslims and non-Muslims have conflicted.
The Peace Council has been conference with the Muslim elders and their youth as well as non-Muslims in the region.
Conflicts in the region over a piece of cemetery land drove to the death of 25 year old Aminu Suleman while totals of residents were injured and property ruined.
Even now, some 40 persons have been under arrest in linking with the incident.
Speaking to the media, Reverend Professor Emmanuel Asante, Chairman of the National Peace Council, gave guarantees that the Council was working with the Police to bring all criminals to book.
According to him, the council had been involved in struggling to control the tensions from the beginning of the conflicts and that they have since been involved in conferences with the Tafo leaders and Zongo youth, on ways to ease peace in the region.
Peace matters are such that it calls for communication. It is not only the Peace Council that can expedite peace. The law implementation agencies are there to make sure that people do not take the law into their hands to report their grievances.
For now the National Chief Imam is also in Tafo with a delegation to see the Tafo Chief, Muslim leaders and other views to calm tensions and bring back peace.
