The Upper East Regional Co-ordinating Council has banned the wearing of smocks in Bawku township with immediate effect.

The prohibition, according to the release seeks to curb the use of smocks by “criminals or unscrupulous elements to hide arms and ammunitions and attack opponents or innocent civilians.”

In a press statement signed by Regional Minister Stephen Yakubu, the Council indicated that the decision was taken after consultation with the Upper East Regional Security Council (REGSEC).
