The Regent of Nakung, in the Northern Region,  Adams Bawa Mahama, was Sunday morning arrested by the police at Yendi, Graphic Online has gathered.

Graphic Online also gathers that he was later released after he was sent to the regional capital in Tamale.

Security sources tells Graphic Online that the arrest was in connection with a breach of the roadmap aimed at ensuring peace in the Dagbon area. 

The move has heightened tension in the Yendi area and the Northern Regional Minister, Mr Salifu Saeed has moved in to calm the tension.

Family sources had alleged that the Regent was arrested because he performed his father's final funeral rites and was supposed to pay homage to the Regent of Dagbon for him to select the next of kin for Karaga.

Reports suggested there was a charged atmosphere at the Northern Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) at Tamale where a number of Andani youth gathered and demanded the release of the chief.

To them, the Regent of Nakung did nothing wrong by performing his father's final funeral rites.

But according to security sources, the Regent's move to go pay homage on the Regent of Dagbon was a clandestine move aimed at ensuring that he was crowned the Overlord of Karaga.

That, according to the security sources was in breach of the peace roadmap
