Herdsmen don’t deserve any compensation – Agogo Youth
The Agogo Youth Association has rubbished demands by some herdsmen for compensation for the alleged killing of their cattle by members of the Operation Cowleg taskforce.
The Prez. of the Suudu Baaba Fulani Association of Ghana, Osman Barry, complained of the repeated atrocities perpetrated against Fulanis. He also called for compensation for Fulani victims of the operation, following what some have described as the harsh methods of the task-force. However the Chairman of the Agogo Youth Association, Emmanuel Buabeng urged the authorities to disregard these demands accusing the nomadic herdsmen of killing a number of the residents of the area. He argued that a compensation package should rather be arranged for families who have lost their relatives in clashes with the herdsmen.
