Buipe-Wura Jinapor II has expressed worry over the violence that characterized his enskinment as paramount chief of the Buipe Traditional Area leading to the death of one person and injuries to others.

In a press statement signed in Accra by Mr. John Abdulai Jinapor, spokesperson, Buipe-Wura Jinapor II said it was unfortunate that such violent chieftaincy disputes engulfing the northern part of the country could be allowed to catch up with the people of Buipe who until now had shown a high sense of maturity and lawfulness.

He noted that what was more worrying was the fact that the protracted dispute would have been laid to rest following the pronouncement of judgment by the Judicial Committee of the Northern Regional House of Chiefs on the June 11, 2008 in favour of the Jinapor Gate and the subsequent enskinment of Buipe-Wura Jinapor II.

The release said as the overlord of the Buipe Traditional Area, the Buipe-Wura’s family believed that it was his responsibility towards his subjects and the people in general to work tirelessly in restoring peace and tranquillity in the area of his jurisdiction.

“The Buipe Wura Jinapor II wishes to use this opportunity to passionately and humbly make an urgent appeal to all factions involved in this dispute to give peace a chance and resort to dialogue towards resolving any grievance.”

The Buipe-Wura said he was, however, happy that calm had been restored and expressed his condolence to the bereaved family and to those who were affected in the violent clash.

He thanked the Government, the Minister of the Interior, the Northern Regional Minister, the District Chief Executive, security agencies and the Member of Parliament for Yapei Kusawgu for their swiftness and impartiality that brought the situation under control.
