Fulani herdsmen banned from Adaklu


The chiefs and people of Adaklu-Kodzobi, near Ho, on Tuesday declared Fulani herdsmen

?persona non grata? in the area.

FULANI HERDSMENA press release signed by Togbe Dzegblade IV, the Chief of the Community

and copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA), said the community had exhausted

its patience in tolerating the persistent destruction of crops by the

herdsmen and their cattle and thus no longer wanted them on their lands.

The community took the decision after a herdsman allegedly badly injured

a native of Adaklu-Kodzobi on Sunday for rebuking him for allowing his cattle

to destroy crops on farms in the community.

Mr Daniel Dzivor, the victim, was said to have sustained deep cutlass

wounds on his arm and forehead and was receiving treatment at the Ho

Municipal Hospital.

A source in the community said six Fulani herdsmen were arrested around

the crime scene Sunday morning by the Asafo Company and handed over to the

destroyed food crops and attacked the people.

The release said the Community could not guarantee the safety of Fulani

herdsmen in the area without the intervention of State agencies should they

continue to destroy their crops without.

The issue of Fulani herdsmen attacking members of the local communities

where their cattle graze has become a national security concern.
