Upper East: REGSEC bans wearing of smocks in Bawku

Must Read

The Upper East Regional Co-ordinating Council has banned the wearing of smocks in Bawku township with immediate effect.

In a press statement signed by Regional Minister Stephen Yakubu, the Council indicated that the decision was taken after consultation with the Upper East Regional Security Council (REGSEC).

The imposition according to the release seeks to address the use of smocks by “criminals or unscrupulous elements to hide arms and ammunitions and attack opponents or innocent civilians.”

Residents in Bawku are therefore urged to take note of the directive to be enforced by Municipal Security Committee (MUSEC) and comply until further notice.

Individuals who fail to heed the directive the Council noted “will be dealt with accordingly.”
