Sheik Abubakari Subhaanalhae, a prominent Spiritual Leader in the Fulani Community in Ghana has appealed to President John Dramani Mahama to set up a committee to investigate the murder of four Fulanis by some people from Konkomma Traditional Area on the 4th May, 2013 near Yeji.
Speaking to the press at Yeji, Sheik Abubakari Subahaanalhae condemned the attack by the people of Konkomma which led to the death of four people namely, Alhaji Bello Mikoli, 90 yrs, Alhaji Abdu 70yrs, Abubakari Mohammed and Umaru Bolgari and described the attack as senseless and wickedness.
He said he would be pleased with the President if he would institute a probe into the murder of those four Fulani herdsmen who were chased and shot dead like armed robbers and the perpetrators brought to book without mercy.
The Sheik drew the attention of President John Dramani Mahama to the Bible and the Koran emphasizing the need of the President to take good care of his subjects including foreigners.
He said animal rearing and crops farming are important but pointed out that, both of them must be taken care of. ?It is the almighty God who created them and assigned them with different occupation for them to feed the nation. God has put President John Dramani Mahama in the position as a father for all, therefore it is the responsibility of president Mahama to protect each group and accord them with justice and this is the only way to ensure peace among them,? he said.
Sheik Subhaanalhae admitted that there is some complain by farmers about animals destroying their crops, and if it is so, attacking the Fulani Community like what happened at Atebub, Prang, Gushegu, Buipe, Agogo, Walewale and other part of the country, killing the animals and taken the meat away is not the solution but it is ?stealing or robbery in disguise.?
He made reference to the Gushegu incident where fourteen people only children and women were killed by Konkobas.
He has appealed to the Embassies in the country to come to their aid.
?We cannot be unconcerned,? Sheik said, adding that the time has come for the truth to be known for majority cannot suffer for few wrong doers. He also appealed to the parliament to take keen interest in the Fulani problem and find a lasting solution to it.
On his contribution, Alhaji Mohammed Awudu dismissed the allegation that fulani?s are rapist, robbers, murders, and other social vices. He appealed to the securities especially the police that any criminal or robbery level against the Fulani?s must be investigated because people have taken the language barrier as their weak point.
The Agona Sweduro Fulani chief said Ghanaians must know that the Fulani community cut across the whole country even since time in memorial. Some of them have served in the army before independence and their children are now over all the working sectors. So Ghanaians should see them as brothers and sisters and find lasting solution once and for all.
Alhaji Awudu commended the Brong Ahafo Regional Police commander Mr. Robert Ayalongo and his men for working hard to track down all those involved in any criminal act being Fulani, Ghanaian or any other persons.
