The Ashanti Regional Police Command has said it will not be frightened by attacks on officers of the Operation Cow Leg task force by Fulani herdsmen in Agogo.
According to ASP Juliana Obeng, the Ashanti Regional Police Public Relations Officer, the Police will continue to ensure law and order in the area as far as the activities of the Fulani herdsmen are concerned.
Her comments come after three soldiers and a police officer, who are members of Operation Cow Leg, were shot by herdsmen in Agogo on Monday, 8 January 2018.
An unknown assailant, according to the Police, laid ambush and shot at the security officers who were in the bush as part of measures to evict the nomads and their cattle.
Speaking on this development in an interview with Chief Jerry Forson on the Ghana Yensom show on Accra 100.5FM, on Tuesday, 9 January, ASP Obeng said: “We have beefed up the task force in Agogo to ensure law and order in that area as far as the Fulani menace is concerned.
“We want to assure the public that we will continue with the Operation Cow Leg to ensure that the situation is brought under control. We will not be intimidated by the attacks.”
