“It is sad and painful that the matter which is essentially among brothers had degenerated to the point of litigation.

“The government hearby appeals to all parties in the matter, being blood relatives, to work together and withdraw the matter from the court.

” And begin a process of dialogue towards the amicable resolution of the issues in the interest of the sanctity of our most respected traditional institution, ” Nehikhare said.

According to the commissioner, the state government is also open to working with all parties for a peaceful resolution of the dispute. (NAN)
