RESIDENTS OF Agogo in the Ashanti Region are said to be living in
fear following the shooting of a farmer in the area.
The farmer, Asabil Asawe, was said to be working on his sugar cane
farm on Sunday morning when a certain Fulani herdsman shot him to death.
The sad incident happened on the deceased’s farm at Asatoase, near
Kowireso. He was reported to have been hit in the abdomen causing him to fall
down heavily and as a result started to bleed profusely. Some people managed to
rush the victim to the Agogo Presbyterian Hospital for treatment but he died on
Information making rounds indicated that the Fulani herdsman
vanished into thin air after shooting Asabil Asawe without provocation. The
matter had been reported to the police in the area but no arrest had been
made when this report was being filed on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the members of a group calling itself ‘Agogo Youth
Association’ have declared that they are living in fear following the shooting
of Asabil Asawe.
