Bangolang Chieftaincy Palaver: Villagers Besiege NW Governor's Office

Some villagers from Bangolang in the Ngoketunjia Division of the North West Region have stormed North West Governor's office requesting for the release of their brothers, sisters, and parents who were arrested last week. The group which is mostly made up of youths have vowed that they will not leave the governor's office until their compatriots are released from detention. It should be recalled that on February 17, Bagolang village registered an unprecedented incident when some kingmakers attempted to dethrone their ruler Fon Chafah Isaac. During that incident, some elders and youths were also arrested including the allegedly enthroned new fon. 
On February 19, 2016, when North West Governor arrived the scene his vehicle was vandalized and it is  also alleged that those who were in support of Fon Chafah like the mayor of Babessi also saw their property vandalized. This incident has generated alot of debate on the social media as expressionists say the people could dethrone their fon while others say in the graffi tradition, the fon is enthroned for life.
