Leave Our Land Now Or We Kill Your Cattle - Ejurahene To Fulani Herdsmen
The Paramount Chief of Ejura Traditional Area in Ashanti Region, Barima Osei Hwedie II has also ordered Fulani herdsmen in the area to immediately move their cattle out of the area, or have their cattle killed. According to the chief, it has become evidently clear these herdsmen are behind the rampant armed robbery incidents and
murdering of innocent persons in the traditional area. Addressing a gathering of Chiefs, elders, and all security services heads in the Ejura Municipality, Barima Osei Hwedie II, stated that the traditional authority cannot sit down unconcerned for such criminal activities to persist hence the need to crack the whip now. A few days ago,
Fulani herdsmen accosted, shot, and then killed a Police officer who was off duty on the Miminaso No. 2 to the Nkoranza stretch of road and we cannot allow such crimes to continue. We have thus resolved that we will no longer entertain any cattle on our land. We are today declaring that no cattle belonging to Fulani herdsmen
should be found on our land. Any chief in this jurisdiction on whose land we find cattle will be dealt with. I’m serving notice that we’ll kill any cattle found in any village, not a single one will be spared. We don’t want any Fulani herdsman to live amongst us. Barima Osei Hwedie II, further warned all chiefs within his jurisdiction to fully comply with his directive or have themselves to blame for the consequences of their action.
