Seven persons have been arrested by the police in the Northern Region in connection with yesterdays violence in Salaga that resulted in the burning down of the NPP constituency party office and some party billboards.
The suspects were picked up in the early hours of this morning, at Salaga upon intelligence, to assist in further investigations.
Police in the region are investigating the matter and the process of identifying and arresting more suspects is currently underway.
Yesterday at about 5.30 pm a section of the youth in Salaga went on the rampage and set the NPP constituency party office ablaze and pulled down party billboards in protest against the naming of Damongo as the capital of the Savannah region by the President.
Police moved in and succeeded in preventing the youth from burning down the District Assembly building as well as the DCE bungalow and dispersed the crowd.
The Police managed to bring the situation under control and police reinforcement has been sent to Salaga from Tamale to help control the situation.
Suspects were quickly identified and seven of them subsequently arrested.
Police is urging the people of Salaga to remain calm and not to take the law into their hands and help in identifying more suspects.
Any person found disturbing the peace will be dealt with decisively.
