The Agogo community in the Ashanti region, is demonstrating today, Tuesday April 12, towards getting Fulani nomads out of the area.
The “Y3 GYE YA’SAASE” – to wit, ‘We Are Taking Back Our Land’ demonstration is being organised by the Agogo Mman Kuo (local and Accra branches), Agogo Worldwide Association and Agogo Youth Association in conjunction with the Agogo Traditional Council and Agogo Local Council of Churches.
The locals say they can no longer take the deaths, destruction of farms, maiming of their kith and kin and the daily struggles they go through as a result of the activities of the Fulani herdsmen and their cattle.
The demonstration comes after the expiration of a one-month ultimatum given the herdsmen by the Agogo Traditional Council to vacate the area.
The demonstration will start from the main bus terminal in the community. Leaders of the groups organising the demonstration are expected to present a petition to the authorities there over the matter.
