Okobeyeyie Chief fights Fulani herdsmen and others
The Chief and residents of Okobeyeyie, a community in the Nsawam Adoagyir Municipality of the Eastern Region, have called on the government, particularly the Assembly, to urgently come to their aid.
According to the Chief, Nana Opare Odei II, the influx of people, suspected to be Fulani, have reduced the area into lawlessness, as they go about disturbing residents.
He explained that his palace had been flooded with complaints by farmers in the township about how the Fulani herdsmen and their cattle were destroying their farm produce, amidst threats of death.
Speaking at a press conference at Okobeyeyie, Nana Opare Odei II stated that they had given the government two weeks ultimatum to address the situation, because they were law abiding citizens and would not like to take the law into their hands.
To this end, he called on the government to immediately take steps to deal with the situation before it gets out of hand, since the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for the area had shown little or no interest in the matter.Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Pinterest
