Six people, including three Fulani herdsmen, have died within four days, following separate gun assaults and reprisal attacks between the herdsmen and residents of some farming communities in the Kwahu East District of the Eastern Region.

Some unknown Kwahu indigenes attacked and killed three Fulanis last Tuesday, and the herdsmen retaliated by attacking nearby communities, terrorising residents and destroying properties.

Residents in Kwahu have blamed the latest attacks on a recent statement by Member of Parliament (MP) for Abetifi, Bryan Acheampong, asking his constituents to safeguard their lives and properties by standing up against the atrocities of the Fulani herdsmen.

 

Speaking on Accra FM, Mr Eric Kwakye Darfour who is the Regional Minister was not happy about the killings.

He said "The REGSEC will be meeting tomorrow to meet all the feuding parties in the issue.

"This Fulani issue has been there for years because the cattle-rearing by the Fulainis has become business.

"Normally, you will realise that the cattle belong to the natives who have employed Fulanis as caretakers and so if you want to be targeting the Fulanis alone, you wouldn’t make any headway."
