Over 260 Fulani herdsmen flee into Ghana
More than 260 Fulani herdsmen have run to the Bole District in the Northern Region as refugees following a conflict between them and the Brifos, an Ivorian ethnic group at Bouna, a border town near Bole in Ghana. The escaping cattle herders and their families, mostly children and women, ran to Ghana after they were chased out of the town by the locals in Bouna.
The Brifos were said to be angered by the continued destruction of their farms by the animals of the herdsmen.
The Bole District Police Commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Eric Awiadem, confirmed the development to the Graphic Online in an interview.
He explained that on Friday, March 25, this year, the Bole District Security Committee (DISEC) heard that there was a conflict between the Fulani herdsmen and the Brifo people. Following the information, he said the DISEC suspected there could be a spillover of the conflict to Ghana since it was close to Bole.
ASP Awiadem said the Fulanis have been provided with shelter in Bole, saying they did not come with their cattle. He added that “We don’t want them to bring their cattle here to cause any trouble to our farmers”. He, however, denied earlier media reports that the military had invaded the town.
When contacted, the Sixth Garrison Public Relations Officer (PRO), Flying Officer Elizabeth Salifu, said the military received an order to move to the area to assist the police.
“We were called to assist the police and to provide escort services to those who were crossing over to Bole”, she stated.
