Ghanaian Army Chief orders "shoot-to-kill" on Fulani herdsmen


The about 200 combined military and police force deployed to evacuate the Fulani nomads from the Asante Akyem North and Sekyere Afram Plains Districts in the Ashanti region, have been advised to shoot on sight in the wake of the slightest threat.

The security personnel have been psyched to even shoot at a leave in the bush if it moves in a way they are suspicious of.

Addressing the battle-ready men in uniform as they set off to evacuate normally Fulani herdsmen from Agogo land, the Konongo Divisional police commander, Superintendent Bossman Ohene-Boadi painted a horrific picture of the nomads.

“They are not people we have to toil with, they are dangerous, if you joke with them, they will take your life,” he told his men.

The Fulani herdsmen have over the years been accused of destroying farmlands of Agogo residents and at times killing the farmers.

Three soldiers and a police officer were left in critical condition after being ambushed and shot by persons suspected to be Fulani herdsmen on Monday at Agogo on their normal operation.

The security personnel deployed at Asante Akyem North and Sekyere Afram Plains Districts have therefore been told to defend themselves.

“I believe in safety first,” Supt. Ohene-Boadi told an already charged team, “if you see anybody holding arms and wants to attack, please don’t waste time.”

He said the Operation Cowleg that were stationed there have been beefed with more officers from Accra.

He therefore enquired from the security personnel, “are Fulanis better than us? Can they shoot better than us?” which they answered in unison “no sir!”

“Nobody should die in the bush…no risk taking,” he reminded them of the potential threat ahead, revealing that some nomads calling themselves gorillas are bent on ambushing them.

It was based on this that he relayed the concern of the Member of Parliament for the area that, “if you see a leave waving and you are not sure of the leave, please shoot and see what it is”.


The commander issued clear instruction to his men that they should not allow the herdsmen to take over the Agogo land because it is the food basket of the country.

    1. You are right. The only problem in the Nigerian case is that those expected to "break the fight" appears to be part of the problem.

  3. I love my Ghana people joor, not these cows and monkeys in human form that they are leaders in Nigeria, nothing but a terrorist government in Nigeria.... The United nations should hold Buhari and his cabal army responsible for the unlawful killing of innocent people since Buhari took office not good but death, nightmare, hunger, hardship and suffering for the people who voted for him... Blackmail in the highest level.... He said he was for nobody and for everybody... But now look at his agenda.... No economic plans for the country, no austerity plans and developmental plan in place so the question is why do Nigerians watch a dead old man with not intellectual capacity to continue to lead them into economic crisis and they do nothing....

    1. Your so right my brothers. The man is for the people at all but for him self and his belly. I don't know how he will be put to justice but violence does not solve all problema. However, he must reap what he sees just like Trump will in America. Only God will deliver our land Nigeria, Biafara or whatever and other African Nations. Amen
