The government has condemned the enskinment of a new Bawku Naba and described it as illegal and a threat to national security.
A press statement issued by the Ministry of Information today reiterated that Naba Asigri Abugrago Azoka Il is the Bawku Naba, duly gazetted, and a member of the National and Upper East Regional Houses of Chiefs.
“The Security agencies have therefore been directed to arrest and prosecute any other person who holds himself out as a Bawku Naba,” it warned.
It stated that any developments that have the potential to undermine the peace of Bawku would also be dealt with swiftly and in accordance with the law.
