The District Chief Executive of Sekyere Central, Kwadwo Banahene addressing the gathering at an assembly meeting said that most of these fulani herdsmen come all the way from Asante Akim Central to destroy crops and other farm produce in the district.
Mr. Banahene said the police are working assiduously on measures to curb the situation because maintaining security for the citizenry is their main responsibility.
He also indicated that the general security in the district is stable, adding that there are issues that need to be tackled, to ensure safety and authorities are working to address them.
He disclosed that the police have started patrolling at night, and while watchdog committees are also been established to help in keeping citizens safe. There are also efforts for the acquisition of official vehicle for the police to boost their operations.
The DCE however bemoaned the use of hard drugs by the youth as has been the report, particularly Tramadol, adding taking in such substances will push people into doing things against the law, thus the need for the youth to stay away from all forms of self medication.
