Police to arrest MP for Asante Akyem North and Owusu Bempah for inciting violence (updated)

The Police are looking for the Member of Parliament for Asante Akyem North, Mr Kwadwo Baah Agyemang and Mr Ernest Owusu Bempah. a member of the National Democratic Party (NDP) on allegations of inciting the people of Agogo to violence.

This followed a clash between the Fulani herdsmen and Konkomba settlers in Agogo on Wednesday as a result of the call by the two to chase all cattle and herdsmen from the town, reports Graphic Online’s Ashanti Regional reporter, Kwadwo Baffoe Donkor.

The utterances of the two indigenes of Agogo, according to the police led to a confrontation between Fulani herdsmen and some farmers in Ejura.

A total of five cows were killed and gunshots which were fired injured a Fulani man. A police and military team have since been deployed to the area to maintain law and order.

At a press conference, Owusu Bempah asked the people to defend themselves against the Fulani.

The police are therefore looking for them to arrest.
