The Ejua Sekyedumase Municiapal Chief Executive, Mohammed Salisu Bamba has vowed to flush out Fulani herdsmen who have stormed the area with their cattle destroying farm produce.
According to him, beginning Tuesday, a team of military officers will commence an onslaught on the Fulani herdsmen who annually pitch camp in the area with their large herd of cattle to graze.
“By next week Tuesday or Wednesday we’ll have soldiers coming here to drive out the Fulani herdsmen. The Planting for Foods and jobs programme initiated by the government will suffer if this Fulani menace is not stopped immediately. A lot of money has pumped into the Planting for Food and Jobs programme, a large quantity of fertilizers have supplied to farmers to improve on their yields. If we allow these Fulani herdsmen to destroy peoples farms with their cattle then we would have done ourselves a great disservice.”
