Asante Akyem MP faces arrest for ‘fueling’ Agogo conflict

Police in the Ashanti region have invited the Member of Parliament for Asante Akyem North Kwadwo Baah Agyemang for questioning following his comments in the raging tensions between residents of Agogo and Fulanis living there.

Sources say some comments made by the MP have led to the escalation of hostilities among the feuding factions.

Speaking to Starrfmonline.com Thursday the Ashanti regional Police Commander DCOP Kofi Boakye said Mr. Baah Boateng must produce himself or will be arrested.

“We have invited him to come and if he doesn’t come, we will arrest him,” he said.

So far, five cows have been burnt alive and one person injured in the sporadic gunshots that have accompanied the melee.

The nomads have been accused of perpetrating crimes including murder and rape besides the destruction of farm crops by their grazing cattle.

A police and military team have since been deployed to the area to maintain law and order
