Arrest killers of Fulanis – Adib Saani tells Police


The Executive Director for the Centre for Human Security and Peace Building who is also a Security Analyst, Mr Adib Saani has told the Police to arrest the killers of Fulanis.

He said it is shocking that days after the attack not a single person ahs been arrested.

Some unknown assailants reportedly attacked a Fulani community near Yendi in the Northern Region on Wednesday April 13, 2022.

Initial reports suggested that seven died from the attacks but police, after patrolling the village, confirmed that the number of deaths was nine.

in a statement issued on Tuesday April 19, Mr Adib Saani said “We are shocked by the inability of the Ghana Police Service to arrest a single suspect days after the incident. Not even a statement has been issued by the police in respect of the crime.

“Jatikay Centre has had the opportunity to interview some leaders of the Fulani Community in Ghana and they appear to be having a hectic job appealing to their fellows to remain calm. According to them, their peace advocacy in the face of the attacks is proving ineffective because of the inaction of the police in arresting the culprits.

“This obviously poses a major threat to the security of the state in a sense that the proliferation of small arms and light weapons has resulted in many of the residents of the communities in that area being armed to the teeth.

“When Fulanis stage revenge attacks, it could start a full-blown conflict. Already, there are many human insecurities that have pushed a lot of young people in the area into uncertainty. Any trigger can cause these young people to explode into open belligerence as they already do not have much to live for.”
