Soldiers storm Asante Akyim Agogo over Fulani disturbances – Eyewitness

A reader of GhanaCelebrities.Com has furnished us with images and videos of military men having stormed Asante Akyim Agogo with helicopters and military vehicles over the Fulani disturbances in that area.

Several confused residents of the town have trooped to the grounds where two helicopters have landed, the reader stated.

About 4 days ago, it was reported that Gulani nomads at Agogo in the Asante Akim district of the Ashanti Region have allegedly shot five soldiers and it, therefore, seems the military “invasion” of the town is as a result of this.

Asante Akim DCE Andrew Appiah Kubi who spoke on the Fulani’s presence in the area and the shooting said: ‘all the Fulanis and their herdsmen must leave our lands. They have no right to any parcel of lands in Agogo area and they cannot forcibly also enter on our lands and expect us to remain quiet for them to destroy farmlands and produce.”

He said the nomads have been given a week’s moratorium to evacuate from the Agogo lands.

“The community insisted on three-day moratorium but magnanimously the Paramount Chief has extended it to one week. So we expect these people [Fulani nomads] to leave our lands within one week,” he stated in his briefing.
