“Not only Janga alone will get up and fight them (Gonjas)..all Mamprugu will face them so that there will be peace at that place. When they beat us they should take the place, when we beat them even Daboya self we will take the place”; he said.

The Soo Naa warned; “If government didn’t come there and we hear that they (Gonjas) came there with lies, not only Lukula we will fight, we will face Daboya direct”.

Naa Maligu Nantomah Seidu also said;
“I want them (Gonjas) to know today today as I’m saying, they are liars, they are human vultures..anywhere they saw there is food they will land there, tellimg lies.. the Wasipewura is a liar..he is my colleague, he is not telling his people the right thing”.
