A report that WestAfrica24.com can confirm authoritatively indicates that there is a war declared against Fulani herdsmen in the regional capital of the newly created Bono East Region, Techiman.

The latest killing happened last week Saturday, 31st August when a 32 years old herdsman went to the bush to look for his cow. During the search for his cow, he was ambushed, murdered and his head cut off.
According the one of the brothers of the deceased who spoke to WestAfrica24.com and requested anonymity, the deceased went to the bush in morning in search of his cow but could not return in the evening. As a result, a search was conducted by family and friends on that Saturday but he wasn’t found.
The next day which was Sunday, 1st September, family and friends decided to go and search for the deceased again and to their dismay, they found the lifeless and headless body of whom they were searching for.
The body of the deceased was then taken by the police to the Holly Family Hospital. According to the brother of the deceased, the burial of the deceased took place on Tuesday, 3rd August.

Another source who is not linked to the deceased also indicated to WestAfrica24.com that the recent killings of the herdsmen in the region are not being talked about. The reason being that some big personalities in the region are ALLEGEDLY behind the killings so the media in Techiman are afraid to carry out the stories.
