Attack on residents & Security: Joint Military & Police Force dispatched to maintain law & Order

Written by  Jan 12, 2018
A joint military and police team numbering about two hundred (200) commenced an operation today [Friday] in the Asante Akyem North and Sekyere Afram Plains districts of the Ashanti and Eastern regions in response to the recent attacks on residents and security personnel in the area by nomadic herdsmen.   A statement issued by the Information Ministry and signed by Deputy Minister, Curtis Perry Kwabla Okudzeto said, the objectives of the operation are to: ‘’pushback the herdsmen from new areas they have occupied; arrest perpetrators of recent acts of violence for prosecution and augment the efforts of operation cowleg, an ongoing security operation aimed at dealing with the activities of herdsmen in the area.''   The statement added, the join forces will also include the Air Force.   ‘’A programme to restrict and ranch cattle will commence upon completion of the operation, to provide a long-term solution to the challenges associated with unrestricted cattle rearing,’’ the statement concluded.
