Members of the two households in the Hohoe Zongo community who were victims of an arson attack last year, are pleading with the Hohoe District Assembly to help them with the assistance they were promised.
Two houses in the Zongo Community were burnt down in June last year, after violence broke over the exhumation of the body of the Hohoe Chief Imam.
The houses were burnt down in breach of the curfew that was imposed on the community by the Hohoe District Security Council.
Speaking to Citi News
, one of the victims, Abubakar Abdulai said the two households had been staying with friends and relatives looking forward the fulfillment of the promises made to them by the President and NADMO.
According to them, President Mahama, who was then Vice President promised to provide financial and material assistance through the assembly but that promise has not been fulfilled.
“He [President Mahama] came to our place and promised that he would make sure those who lost their things will have something to start their lives with.
To me, during that time, all the people who lived in the area left so I was all alone there so I decided to leave but when I was coming back, I couldn't reach my house because of the curfew and the following morning I was called and told my house had been burned down,” Mr Abudulai stated.
