Eastern Regional Minister, Mr. Kwakye Daffour has called for the establishment of laws to regulate cattle farming in the country.
The minister in an interview with Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm said, because there is no regulation, there is diffusion and too much openness with regards to solutions to the rearing of cattle.
He maintained, without a regulation, it will be extremely difficult to deal with the issue.
Over 100 people have been displaced in some parts of the Kwahu East District of the Eastern Region following separate reprisal attacks between Fulani Herdsmen and some community members at Dwibease and Wheewhee communities.
So far, eight persons have been reported dead, according to police. Among the dead are five Fulanis and three local residents.
The minister kicked against reprisal attacks and urged residents to have patience as the security agencies are working to resolve the problem.
The Security Council he announced is arranging for a meeting with stakeholders including chiefs, Fulani herdsmen and residents on the best way forward.
He also asked the media to be circumspect in their reportage. According to him, some of the stories are exaggerated. Some of the herdsmen he indicated were born and breed in Ghana and are law abiding hence we should not attach emotions to the narratives.
No one has been arrested yet because those who perpetrate their criminal activities do so in the dark, he said.
