The Agogo District Police Command says it is resorting to the use of dialogue to restore peace after renewed dispute between some Fulani herdsmen and farmers in the Agogo Traditional Area.

Whilst security in the Agogo township has been beefed up with a joint police– military presence following recent attacks on lives and property by some nomadic herdsmen, the police is facilitating dialogue between the traditional leaders and the leadership of the herdsmen to find an amicable solution to the dispute.

According to the Agogo District Police Commander, ASP James Jerry Ameka, the police have resorted to dialogue to calm tensions.

“We had a meeting with them to urge them to dialogue for peace, and also assured them that they should have confidence in us to assist in finding lasting peace,” he said.

A recent clash between security guards at Dukusen near Agogo and some herdsmen over the weekend resulted in the death of one security man. The incident has created immense tension in the area, amidst fears of reprisal attacks.
