Buipe-Wura calls for calm as group demands eviction of herdsmen in Buipe

The Paramount Chief of the Buipe Traditional Area, Buipe-Wura Jinapor II, has urged the youth of Buipe to exercise maximum restraint and ensure peace prevails in the traditional area.

The Buipe-Wura made this call following persistent demands and agitations from a section of the youth that people of Fulani extraction who are currently residing in Mande, a suburb of Buipe, should be ejected from their homes.

The Buipe-Wura stated that Buipe is the only place called home, adding that “it is incumbent on all of us, particularly our youth to protect this home and make it a safer place for all of us irrespective of tribal affiliation so we continue to enjoy our everyday lives without threats or intimidations”.

It will be recalled that a section of the youth, led by Issah Alhassan and Yahaya Razack both natives of Buipe held a press briefing insisting that the indigenes can no longer coexist with the Fulani community.

The group also threatened to eject them if their call is not heeded to.

The threat from the youth comes on the heels of an allegation that the Buipe-Wura has installed a Fulani man as a traditional chief of Buipe.

But the allegation has been swiftly dismissed by the Buipe palace; insisting that on the contrary a Gonja royal known as Abdulai Alhassan (from the Chinchako gate) was rather enskinned as the substantive chief of Mande.

In an earlier statement from the Buipe Traditional Council, the Youth Chief of the Buipe Palace, Chief Shansudeen Kibasibe raised serious concern over the threat by the youth group to invade the Buipe palace on Sunday 18th December 2022 if their demands are not met.

Information gathered confirms that all attempts by the Regional Minister and elders of the community to persuade the group from their threats have failed.

The Buipe palace has, however, insisted that the Buipe-Wura can not take the law into his own hands and eject Fulanis, who have coexisted peacefully with the indigenes for decades.

Chief Jinapor also reiterated his call for peace and mutual cooperation amongst all the tribes in Buipe, adding that it is the surest way to economic development.
