Police mount special surveillance on Agogo; Investigate murder of 2 men

Police at Konongo in the Ashanti Region have mounted special surveillance on Agogo and neighbouring communities as they investigate the murder of two men at Agogo.

The two were shot dead in the town yesterday by people believed to be herdsmen.

They were said to have been killed while fetching water on their farm.

The incident follows a long-drawn battle between residents and the herdsmen who have been accused of destroying farms in the area.

Konongo District Police Commander Superintendent, Ohene Boadi Bossman in an interview with Joy News said the police would also be meeting the families of the deceased.

“We still going round to try and find out who were the people who perpetrated this crime but as I’m speaking to you now I cannot confirm it is Fulani or not but that is what we suspect,” he said.

Supt Bossman said the herdsmen might have carried out the attack to get back at the people for driving them out of the place.

He said the police will “move to the bush stay there for some time and see what we can do to ensure that we stabilize the situation in Agogo.”

He also said more security men have been deployed to the town even as investigations continue.
