Asante Akyem Agogo has been in the news for the past week over the killings of natives by Fulani herdsmen – the youth in the town have vowed to retaliate violently since all efforts to stop those Fulanis have been unsuccessful.
But the Deputy General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho says the people of Agogo must be compassionate with the Fulani herdsmen since – “not all Fulani herdsmen are foreigners. Some are Ghanaians.”http://ghanapoliticsonline.com
Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’, Koku believes that any attack on the Fulanis will be xenophobic – “We don’t have to kill them. The right channel must be used to solve this problem.”
“The cattle they are taking care of is for Ghanaians, so why should we kill them?” he quizzed.
