Mr Dery urged all residents of Bimbilla to be confident to go about their normal duties as security personnel were in charge of the situation.

Meanwhile, some shops opened on Tuesday as business activities began to flourish in the area.

Renewed conflict last week in the Northern Region claimed about 11 lives – women and children included – and destroyed properties.

A dozen more are reported injured.

The sporadic shooting in the town on Thursday, February 9, 2017, was triggered by a misunderstanding between two royal gates.

The gun battle between the two royal gates happened despite a 12-hour curfew imposed on the area, a situation that threatens to plunge the poverty-ravaged township into yet another chaotic situation.

Efforts to end the decades-old Bimbila chieftaincy bloodshed have proved elusive to different governments.
