    Ghanaian security authorities have deployed troops to the northern town of Bimbilla ahead of Wednesday’s landmark verdict by the Supreme Court on the Bimbilla chieftaincy dispute.
    According to the Municipal Police command, the deployment is intended thwart any disturbances after the verdict.
    The 15-year chieftaincy conflict in Bimbilla often leads to clashes between the various factions and has claimed over forty lives.
    Journalist Prince Appiah spoke to WADR’s Adolphus Mawolo on the line from Accra about the dispute and the expected verdict.
