Dr. Archibald sought to isolate the killings from the land dispute between the Alavanyo and Nkonya

Nkonya killings will be treated as a criminal matter – Minister
The Volta Regional Security Council will hand the
recent killing of two persons at Nkonya Zongo in
the Volta Region on Wednesday evening as a
criminal matter.

During a media briefing on Thursday, the Volta
Regional Minister and Chairman of the Council, Dr.
Archibald Letsa, sought to in the meantime,
isolate the killings from the long-standing land
dispute between the Alavanyo and Nkonya

Initial reports indicated that some unknown
assailants opened fire on five farmers from
Nkonya-Ahenkro who were returning from their farm
on Wednesday. This led to the death of the two
persons, aged 40 and 31, with one other person,
21-year-old, sustaining injuries.

The Minister, who said he was taken aback by the
killings, said the Alavanyo and Nkonya factions
have in recent times shown enough commitment
towards the peace building process.

No arrests have been made so far, but the security
agencies are closely monitoring the situation to
avert further attacks and “are very much committed
to getting to the bottom of this crime,” Dr. Letsa
said. “We are treating it as a crime.

It is not about land. It is about people killing
others unlawfully so we are looking at the
criminal aspect, whilst we are working in
consultation with the regional peace council to
look at the peace aspect… We take it that there
was attempted murder and murder.”

Dr. Letsa urged any witnesses to come forward with
any information for the police, and assured that
the identities of such persons will be protected.

“We are only hoping that those who were witnesses
will come forward because they know each other in
the area, and they will be able to help the police
to identify those who are responsible for this

“As much as we are talking about it being a land
issue, we are looking at it essentially as a crime
being committed and the law enforcement agencies
would have to get to the bottom of it and identify
those responsible.”
