GHANA: NOMADIC HERDSMEN ALLEGEDLY KILL FARMER FOR PREVENTING COWS FROM EATING HIS YAM

ACCRA, A 47-year-old farmer at Atebubu Amantin in Ghana’s Brong Ahafo Region was killed Sunday by persons suspected to be nomadic herdsmen.

According to reports, the deceased, Samuel Fusieni, went to his farm at Boliga Nkwanta to prevent cattle from destroying his yam farm when the unfortunate incident occurred.

Wife of the deceased, Amina Samale, who witnessed the gruesome murder in an interview with Adom News said her husband was gunned down by unknown assailants when he attempted to drive the cows out of his farm.

The Fulani herdsmen opened fire on my husband for preventing the cows from chewing his yam, the distraught widow said in Twi.

Samale is calling on the police to as a matter of urgency investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book.

Residents in the area have vowed to retaliate following the incessant killing of indigenes by herdsmen suspected to be Fulanis.

Meanwhile, Atebubu-Amantin District Police Commander, Superintendent Edward Konyer says a post-mortem is being carried out to establish the cause of death.
