The vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has been allegedly accused by
some angry youth of Daboya in the Savannah Region meddling in the Gonja-Mamprusi conflict that has led to the death of some persons in the area.

Speaking to the media in a press conference held at the Northern Regional Police headquarters on Friday, June 2, 2023, when some arrested youth of Daboya were brought there, some sympathizers and youth who massed up there leveled several allegations on the vice president including an alleged pickup that was used by their opponents, purported to belong to Dr. Bawumia.

Soale Bruhan, who described himself as a Daboya Gonja Youthsaid d“ Daboya town has been einvadedded this morning by police to arrest so many innocent people. Thaboution to a case involving two (2) tribes – Gonjas and Mamprusis. We have a longstanding land dispute at our end, where the Mamprusis are occupying. We don’t have any issue with them yet they want to claim it from us. Because power has been vested in them”.

He added that: “They know they have a powerful vice president who will always be behind them. There is a conflict between two (2) tribes and only one (1) is arrested. They have not arrested anybody from Mamprusis land. What did we do to deserve this? Is Gonjas not part of Ghanaians? And the bullets we have found on the ground, if not security, no civilian can afford it”.

He further said; “Just because Mamprusis have the support the of Vice President they have been disturbing Gonjas..we Gonja did not have a Vice President but a President but never attacked any ethnic group”.
