Salifu Saeed 2 620x330Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Sa-eed

The Northern Regional Minister, Salifu Sa-eed has made a passionate appeal to the two feuding Sunni Islamic sects in the Tamale metropolis to stop threatening each other and allow peace to avail in the region.

The Masjid Bayan Sunni sect and the Ambarriya Sunni Community for the past weeks have been engaging in a series of threats on radio stations within the Tamale metropolis.

Ultimate News’ Eliasu Tanko reported that there have been some misunderstanding between the two Sunni sects for over two decades now but the recent happening of verbal threats could mar the relative peace in the region.

Both Sunni sects command the majority of Muslims in the region and any attack will adversely affect the peace and security in the region, especially in a fragile Dagbon.

In a press release, yesterday, Mr Sa-eed said the threats by both Sunni sects are needless and therefore called on them to desist from fueling violence.
