The Volta Regional House of Chiefs has suspended indefinitely, the Paramount Chiefs and Queen Mothers of Nkonya and Alavanyo for their inability to maintain peace between the two traditional areas.
This follows renewed troubles which left two people dead and others in critical condition at Nkonya.
The President of the Volta Regional House of Chiefs Nana Soglo Alloh confirmed the suspension to Citi News after a closed-door meeting with the Volta Regional Minister on Thursday.
He explained that the House of Chiefs took the decision because they were not happy with the developments in those areas.
“We are saying that as far as we are concerned even though we are not blaming them for their direct involvement…we think they have a reasonability of bringing peace in their traditional areas.”
Nana Alloh further explained that the Nkonya and Alavanyo chiefs and queens have also been stripped off any privileges they enjoy including financial benefits “until a peaceful solution is attained and the issue is resolved.”
