Some angry youth of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) at Chereponi in the North East Region on Sunday, September 19, 2021 went on rampage destroying some structures over the nomination of Zuwera Mada Nashiru as the District Chief Executive.
The youth preferred S.K. Orlando.
The timely intervention of the district police deescalated the tension.
The Police said when they got wind of the disturbances, the command invited the Chereponi Constituency Chairman, Aliu Sulemana and some of the youth leaders for an amicable solution.
The Police said the youth promised to keep the peace and also promised to go by the Public Order Act and notify the police accordingly, should they intend to organize the demonstration.
“The Chereponi District Police Command upon receipt of the information quickly invited the Chereponi constituency chairman, Aliu Suleman and some of the youth leaders and after discussing, the chairman and the youth leaders realized the need to keep the peace and abide by the advice of the police not proceed with the demonstration. They also promised to go by the Police Order Act and notify the police accordingly, should they intend to organize the demonstration,” a statement from the police read.
