The Overlord of Gonja Kingdom Yagbonwura, Tuntumba Prof. Sulemana Boresa (I) has said gonjaland remains a peaceful place for investment despite the lynching of a 90-year-old woman at Kafaba in the East Gonja Municipality some time ago.
He said this barbaric act is not the best that has happened in the Gonja kingdom and therefore called on all sons and daughters in the area to stand up and condemn this act of injustice.
“I still want to assure Ghanaians and the entire Gonja kingdom that Gonja still remains a peaceful land and a peaceful place for everybody to invest in and go on with our businesses in success”.
Akua Denteh was lynched after a self-acclaimed soothsayer declared her a witch.
Meanwhile, the suspect Sherina Mohammed, the sorcerer, has been arrested together with six others.
The overlord has expressed his appreciation to the security services for attaching urgency to the matter.
“Having said this, I want to use this opportunity to congratulate the security agencies in Ghana for working assiduously in making sure the perpetrators are brought to book”, he said.
He also thanked the traditional authorities for making sure that suspects are being brought to book.
