Kidnapping

I'll expose all the criminal Fulani elements and their paymasters- Fulani leader threatens

The General Secretary of the Association of Fulanis in Ghana is threatening to blow the cover of influential leaders including chiefs, who are in bed and benefitting from the criminal activities of rogue elements in the Fulani ethic group.

Barry Yakubu Musah said these prominent opinion leaders, would use money and their influence to get the bad guys, attacking and robbing people of their cash and other valuables, freed when arrested.

He claimed to have a tall list of these powerful people doing business with the few criminal Fulani men.

The Association, he said had been cooperating with the appropriate state agencies to round up the few individuals, whose acts of criminality was hurting the good image of the Fulani ethnic group in Ghana.

Barry Yakubu Musah was speaking at their national conference – ‘Tabital Pulaaku International, Ghana, held at Kintampo, the Capital of the Kintampo North Municipality, in the Bono East Region.

The event brought together delegates from across the country to constitute an electoral college that would be electing the association’s new national executives.

The General Secretary urged everybody of the Fulani extraction to be bold to report – flag up to the police the bad guys among them to be dealt with by the law.

He condemned a group of Fulani people in the Bono East Region, creating trouble and disturbing the peace. These people had been kidnapping, using guns to rob and raping women, and he expressed disgust at what they had been doing.

The Fulani, he said, were peaceful and condemned the few bad elements fomenting trouble and creating image crisis for the ethnic group.

Barry Yakubu Musah said everything must be done to rein in the bad ones – arrest and make them answer for their crimes.

He was, however, unhappy with what he said was the collective punishment of the entire ethnic group for the crimes of few individuals.

The generation of issues, when an individual – a member of the ethnic community breached the law, was something they found hurting.

He noted that there was a bad person in every family and that went for every ethnic group.

The Kintampo North Municipal Chief Executive (MCE), Isaac Baffoe Ameyaw, reminded the people to accept to work together to expose criminal elements who had chosen to live outside the law and making life miserable for the law abiding in the society.
