The National Security Advisor, Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah, has kicked against the proposed forceful eviction of Fulani herdsmen of Agogo.

He told Citi News that it is not the best way to go, but the Ghana government is poised to introduce a law banning the free-range grazing of cattle in the country.

The people of Agogo have called for the expulsion of the herdsmen from the area as locals accuse the pastoralists of raping their women, killing and destroying their farms.

“The people of Agogo must understand that we have laws, if you offend me, I don’t go about trying to punish you otherwise there will be mayhem in this country," Brigadier General Mensah stated. "And again many of these cattle are owned by Ghanaians who employ Fulanis to take care of them. ”

In recent times, the two groups on the farming divide have been caught up in serious conflicts leading to death in some instances.
