Old Tafo clashes: Schools shut down

Old Tafo clashes: Schools shut downSchools in Old Tafo in the Ashanti Region have been closed following a deadly clash last Wednesday, February 10.

The clash between Muslim youth and traditional folks was sparked by a disagreement over the construction of a fence wall around the town’s cemetery.

A dawn-to-dusk curfew was, as a result, imposed on Old Tafo with security tightened to prevent any backlash.

On Friday, February 12, most schools in the town were not open to pupils.

According to our correspondent, the move is to save the school children from any unforeseen violence.

TV3’s Benjamin Aidoo reported on Midday Live that some pupils who turned up had to go back home.

Brisk business, our correspondent said, is however picking up two days after the clashes.

Separately, the Chief Imam and leaders of the Muslim community are in the Ashanti Region to meet leadership of the Zongo community over the incident.

The National Peace Council (NPC) has also dispatched a team to help in arbitration talks.
