Seven Nigerians Herdsmen Die In Clash With Farmers In Ghana

The acting Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana, Adekunbi Sonaike Ayodeji, has disclosed the killing of seven Fulani Nigerian herdsmen in Ghana.
Addressing a news conference in Accra, Commissioner Ayodeji said the Fulani herdsmen were killed when they clashed with some farmers in some parts of the country.
She said the Commission will take responsibility in part for the activities of the herdsmen because some of them are citizens of Nigeria.
She sympathized with the farmers whose economic life is destroyed by activities of these Fulani herdsmen.
However, Commissioner Ayodeji has refuted claims by some Ghanaians that activities of Fulani herdsmen are responsible for the destruction of some farms in Ghana.
“It will be unfair to say everything is being caused by these Fulani herdsmen. There are roles played by even the nationals,” she said.
Commissioner Ayodeji blamed the whipping of sentiments by the Ghanaian media which she said is responsible for the recent hostility activities against Fulani herdsmen.
She called on the government to collaborate with the High Commission to resolve the issue before it takes a different proportion.
