Chairman of the Peace Council Reverend Emmanuel Asante and other members of the council are scheduled to meet the two factions in the raging feud at old Tafo in Kumasi.

Prominent among the delegation is a representative of the National Chief Imam.

Meanwhile, twenty more people have been arrested in connection with the disturbances.

The suspects were arrested after they attacked a security team probing the cemetery land row.
