The National Chief Imam, Sheik Usman Nuhu Sharubutu, has expressed worry about the developments at Tafo, the Kumasi suburb where locals have clashed with Muslim youth over a piece of cemetery land.

The national Muslim leader has been meeting with Muslim leaders in the community in an attempt to calm tensions. He will also be meeting with the Tafo Chief and other opinion leaders.

 checks indicate the Chief Imam has already met with the Ashanti Regional Chief Imam, Abdul Mumin and the Zongo Chief, Alhaji Seidu Chibsa.

He is now set to meet the chief of Tafo, Nana Agyen Frimpong  II, and some traditional leaders at his palace.

The Chief Imam is also expected to lead Friday prayers in the troubled Kumasi suburb later today.

The National Peace Council has also been meeting with the Muslim Youth and their elders as well as non-Muslims in the area. The council says it is also working with the Police to bring all culprits to book.
