The Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery has assured the people of the Bole that the curfew lifted in the treaditional area will be reimposed if they fail to keep the peace they are currently enjoying.

Speaking in Damongo during the final funeral rites of Chief Frewura Alex Seidu Sofo, former member of Parliament for the then Damongo/Daboya Constituency and a former deputy minister for roads and highways in the erstwhile John Agyekum Kufour administration, Mr Dery cautioned the people of Bole that the area will be back to curfew if they break the peace of the area.

He was, however, optimistic that the peace will be maintained because the residents will not want to return to curfew.

Mr Dery said the government lifted the curfew through a recommendation by the overlord of the Gonja traditional area, Yagbonwura Sulemana Tutumba Bore-Essa I and the Savannah Regional Security that promised to ensure that peace prevails in the area.

The interior minister described the late MP as very hard working who will be remembered for contributing his quota towards the development of Ghana.

The Savannah Regional Minister, Adam Salifu Braimah also in a tribute to the former legislature described him as a hard working man who will be remembered for his role in the areas of road networks, education, business and general supports for humanity.

He went further to say that the late Sofo would be difficult to replace in the New Patriotic Party  (NPP) in the Savannah region.

The late Alex Sofo Seidu until his demise was an educationist, politician, philosopher, a businessman and traditional ruler in the Busunu traditional area.

He was 70 years and survived by two wives and 10 children.
