The statement, signed by Assistant Commissioner of Police, Kwesi Ofori, Acting Director General in charge of Public Affairs, cautioned the youth to desist from acts that will disturb the peace of the Tamale Metropolis, adding that police will arrest persons who try to jeopardize the peace of the city.
On Saturday, some irate youth have vandalized the Tamale Area Office of VRA/NEDCo and the Lamshegu Divisional Police Command.
At the VRA/NEDCo Commercial Office, the irate youth destroyed the glass doors and windows of the building and smashed the windscreens of cars parked within the offices of the power distributor.
The youth attacked the Lamshegu Police station with stones and other projectiles, destroying the glass windows and doors of the station.
The irate youth were part of a peaceful demonstration, organized by some youth chiefs in Dagbon in protest against what they described as the recent spate of police brutalities in the Tamale Metropolis.
