The Member of Parliament for Abetifi constituency in the Kwahu East District has assured the security forces will do all within their powers to flush out Fulanis from the Kwahu area.
According to him, the Police service together with the military will move the nomads from the community in order to instill peace and tranquility.
The nomads have been at loggerheads with the locals following the killing of over three people recently in the area. There is an uneasy calm in Kwahu East following the latest development.
In an interview with Captain Smart on Adom Fm, a Tema based radio station, Mr. Acheampong said
“I want to use your medium to assure residents and farmers of Kwahu and its environs of their maximum protection and appeal to them to cooperate with the security to achieve lasting peace in the districts and its environs”.
The Member of Parliament who doubles as a Minister of state in charge of National Security added
“So far, we have brought in a number of security officials to start the operation and whatever we need to do to resolve this issue permanently; we will. The security is on red alert to restore calm”.
“The immediate solution which starts from today is the sending of more security men. The main objective is for them to contain the nomadic Fulani and drive them away from that area and make sure that they don’t return.”
The MP said, not a single footprint of a cow will be seen in Kwahu.
