The Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference (GCBC) has expressed deep concern about recent developments in Bawku, which has led to the death of about fifteen (15) people and others who have sustained various degrees of injuries.
In a press release signed by the Catholic Bishop of Sunyani and the President of the GCBC, Most Rev. Matthew Kwasi Gyamfi appealed to the Government “as a matter of urgency, to use all the resources at its disposal to ensure that a lasting solution is found to the protracted conflict in Bawku”.
Bishop Gyamfi urged the Government to “empower the National Security apparatus to ensure the non-infiltration of terrorist groups into the country”.
The Bishop of Sunyani, while commending Security Personnel working in Bawku to maintain peace, law, and order, tasked them “to be more professional and circumspect in the discharge of their duties and be measured in the use of their firearms so as not to kill innocent people”.
The President of GCBC appealed to all factions involved in the conflict and all other stakeholders to “help the process of peace-building” for the sake of the people in Bawku and the country Ghana at large.
