The police warning comes after they deployed members to Garawol to maintain peace and security among the community members, which they said came as dispute flared up over construction of Mosque and an Islamic school.
“The Police High command wishes to clarify that it acted in line with its constitutional mandate of protection of life and properties as well as maintenance of law and order,” police defended their deployment in a statement.
“Neither the GPF nor any other government institution is backing up any party or group being part of the disputed land as claimed by Mancha Trawally in an audio under circulation. The police had taken steps to warn the said Mancha Trawally to desist from circulating such unfounded claim.
“Similarly, the parties to the disputed land matter are encouraged to be law abiding and maintain peace pending the outcome of the matter in court. The public is assured that due diligence and professionalism will continue to be employed in the handling of the situation as we continue to monitor development,” the statement added.
