    GHANA'S PRIME MINISTER, DR. KOFI BUSIA, MET ON MONDAY (SEPTEMBER 22) WITH THE FOUR YENDI CHIEFS WHO HAD BEEN DANNED FROM YENDI SINCE LAST MONTH'S DISTURBANCES IN WHICH 22 PEOPLE WERE KILLED. AFTER THE MEETING, DR. BUSIA REVOKED THE CHIEF'S RESTRICTIONS AND LIFTED THE CURFEW WHICH HAD BEEN IMPOSED ON YENDI. ALSO PRESENT AT THE MEETING WERE BRIGADIER AFRIFA, CHAIRMAN OF THE PRESIDENTIAL COMMISSION; MR. S.D. DOMBO, MINISTER OF HOME AFFAIRS; AND MR. N. Y.B. ADADE, ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

    THE CHIEFS, ACCOMPANIED BY YENDI ELDERS, APPEALED TO DR. BUSIA FOR THE REVOCATION OF THE RESTRICTION ORDERS AND THE RELEASE OF OTHERS ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH THE DISTURBANCES.

    THE FOUR CHIEFS ARE KARAGA-NA, YO-NA, TAMPION-NA AND PISHIGU-LANA. THEY ALL AGREED TO ACCEPT A NEW CHIEF AND TO CO-OPERATE WITH HIM IN THE INTEREST OF PEACE AND STABILITY IN THE DAGBON STATE.

    IN RETURN FOR THEIR PLEDGE, DR. BUSIA ANNOUNCED THE REVOCATION DECISION AND ASSURED THE CHIEFS THAT THE CASES OF THOSE ARRESTED WOULD BE ACTIVELY STUDIED AND THE APPROPRIATE ACTION TAKEN AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
