Bloody clashes loom; you’re not going to kill our cattle - Fulani herdsmen bares teeth

Nomadic Fulani herdsmen at Drobonso in the Sekyere Afram Plains District are mad at the alleged killing of about 30 of their cattle and things can snowball into bloody clashes. Tension clouds are gathering, and a nasty confrontation – a ticking bomb is waiting to go off. The herdsmen have been thrown out of the Agogo portion of the Afram Plains with their cattle, where these heavily armed nomads turned themselves literally into landlords and made life miserable for farmers, but from time to time, they would stray into off-limit areas to graze their cattle on food crop farms and when this happens, their animals are shot and killed.
