Akatsi North District convenes<br>security meeting over chieftaincy<br>disturbances

The Akatsi North District Assembly has convened an emergency
District Security Council (DISEC) meeting to investigate chieftaincy disturbances at Metrikasa
and to restore peace among the factions.
The meeting scheduled for Monday follows some disturbances, which resulted in injuries to
some people after community members learnt that a chief was secretly being installed for
Mr Simon Peter Ofosu, the District Chief Executive for Akatsi North, who spoke to the Ghana
News Agency, said it had become necessary to hold the meeting to engage all factions in the
disturbance to restore peace.
“Today’s meeting is all about peace. I’ll like to appeal to everyone, especially the youth, to
remain calm as we do our best as duty bearers to find an amicable solution to the
disturbances. The peace of the people of Metrikasa, the District is paramount to us.”
Mr Ofosu called on the people not to confuse security personnel, especially the Police, to be
the ones installing a chief for them because that did not fall within their power but rather as
people just acting on the disturbances to restore peace.
Mr Akor Abusah, youth leader at Metrikasa, who in an interview confirmed the planned DISEC
meeting, said Sunday’s chieftaincy disturbances were avoidable, but those behind the secret
installation of a chief chose to ignore the chieftaincy customs and traditions.
