Bimbilla has been engulfed with chiftency dispute after the death of Naa  Abarika Atta in September 1999 between late Nakpaa Naa Salifu Dawuni(great grand son to the Bimbilla skin) and late Bimbilla Naa Dasana Andani Yakubu(direct descendant of the Bimbilla skin).Following the dispute, a ruling was put up by the northern regional house of chiefs in favour of Naa Andani Dasana which was appealed by Nakpaa Naa Salifu Dawuni at national house of chiefs under the leadership of Naa Professor John S Nabila.this appeal was still pending during which Naa Dasana Andani Yakubu was murdered by supporters of late Nakpaa Naa Salifu Dawuni in a mosque whilst he was praying.
