The Ashanti Regional Chief of Fulani Community Alhaji Osman Bio Ahmed has urged all Fulani Herdsmen to surrender their guns to the Ghana Police Service.
Three Military men and one Police Officer were shot by Fulani Herdsmen at Agogo in the Asante Akyem North District of the Ashanti Region on Monday after the two engaged a shooting battle.
Alhaji Osman Bio Ahmed commenting on the issue in an interview with Abusua Fm’s Osei Kwadwo condemned the activities of the Fulani Herdsmen saying it is very sad for Fulani Herdsmen to attack Military Men and Police Office who have been mandated to protect the ordinary citizens.

According to Alhaji Osman Bi, Fulani Herdsmen have no right to use guns to control their cattle hence should resort to the use of their usual sticks.
”I was shocked when I heard that Military Men and a Police Office have been shot by Fulani Herdsmen. I want to use your platform to condemn their actions and urge all Fulani herdsmen to surrender their guns to the police” he said.
He however appealed to the Ashanti Regional Security Council (REGSEC), Member of Parliament for Asante Akyem North Constituency Lawyer Andy Appiah Kubi and the District Chief Executive Oti Boateng to stop creating tension in the Agogo Community.
”I don’t understand why authorities keep saying that the people of Agogo shouldn’t go to their farms. The MP and the DCE are creating unnecessary tension in the community I feel should allow the people to go to their farms and nothing will happen to them” he added.
