Donkro Nkwanta Assembly member Uthan Paul also lamented on the devastating effects the cattle caused last year which led most of the youth to migrate from farming to galamsey.
Assembly member for Ahyiayem Kwaku Azubire, reported an incident of kidnapping by the Fulani herdsmen whereby a Ten thousand Ghana Cedis ransom was demanded before releasing the victim. According to him the community now lives in the grips of fear and anxiety as they don't know who else may fall a victim.
