Bunkpurugu and surrounding area have witnessed dozens of recurring ethnic conflicts with recent resolution by Feuding factions in the nine-year-old violent conflict over the rulership of Bunkpurugu in fulfilling their pledge to bury the hatchet and cease hostilities after holding a joint traditional ritual to demonstrate their resolve to end the bloodshed three years ago, mynewsgh has reported

On March 18, 2016, the Jafouk and Jamong gates — who had been battling it out for the occupation of the Bunkpurugu skin — carried out the traditional “blood burial” ritual to bring an end to the nine-year dispute and to cleanse the land for lasting peace.
