The Eastern regional Police Commander DCOP
Awuntubuge Awuni has charged security
officers in the region to shoot and kill the
cattle of the  Fulani herdsmen who
have migrated to the area.
He gave this directive during the launch of
‘operation cow leg’  to flush out Fulanis
in the region on Monday.
“I will not take any casualty on behalf of the
security personnel who are going there. If
there should be a casualty, it must be them. I
don’t want you to come with one of you
missing, you are not by this directed to fire
indiscriminately but my instruction is that you
have every right to defend yourself when you
come under attack. And my instruction is that;
gun down the cows who will be directed to
you” he said.
120 security Personnel made up of the
military, Police and Immigration were on
Monday deployed to some areas of the region
believed to be flash points.
The month long operation will covers areas such as
Fanteakwa, Upper Manya krobo, Kwahu Affram
Plains South, Kwahu Affram Plains North,
Kwahu East and Dokokrom all in the Eastern
region.
For his part, the outgoing Eastern regional
Minister Antwi Bosiako Sekyere said the Fulani
menace is becoming a major concern in the
region and must be dealt with immediately.
“Once again, the nefarious activities of the
Nomads are here with us in the Eastern region.
Apart from their activities of grazing their
cattle on farm land and forest reserves, the
herdsmen are also alleged to be into all sorts
of crimes including armed robbery, rape,
Stealing, burning of farms and worst of it all,
killing of farmers”.
He said the regional Security Council wants to
be more proactive this time in preventing the
escalation of clashes between herdsmen and
farmers in the area as it happened in previous
years.
